Bookaniasta Buzz- Fracture by Megan Miranda

Megan Miranda's Fracture is coming in January and is already starting to get massive buzz.

Eleven minutes passed before Delaney Maxwell was pulled from the icy waters of a Maine lake by her best friend Decker Phillips. By then her heart had stopped beating. Her brain had stopped working. She was dead. And yet she somehow defied medical precedent to come back seemingly fine -despite the scans that showed significant brain damage. Everyone wants Delaney to be all right, but she knows she's far from normal. Pulled by strange sensations she can't control or explain, Delaney finds herself drawn to the dying. Is her altered brain now predicting death, or causing it?

Then Delaney meets Troy Varga, who recently emerged from a coma with similar abilities. At first she's reassured to find someone who understands the strangeness of her new existence, but Delaney soon discovers that Troy's motives aren't quite what she thought. Is their gift a miracle, a freak of nature-or something much more frightening?

For fans of best-sellers like Before I Fall and If I Stay, this is a fascinating and heart-rending story about love and friendship and the fine line between life and death.

Know what I love about this book?  Everything! Seriously not one thing I don't like - well except that it could have been longer because I didn't want it to end!

I love love the cover! Gorgeous and eerie and spooky all in one.

I love the tension - seriously I read it in one day.

I love the setting - cold and dark and spooky.

I love Decker - he's hot....yeah.

I love that I love the book because Megan is a great friend of mine and I get to watch her succeed in something she loves and is good at it.

I love that not only is she a great writer, but she is one smart cookie. She won some kind of big award for research in bioengineering at MIT. TWICE!  Do you hate her yet?? Smart, cute, and published! She first became interested in brain injuries after supporting a friend who suffered a serious traumatic brain injury.

Although this book isn't as much about "brain injury" as it is about what makes us - US. But knowing that she knows what's behind an injury just adds more believability.
