Teaser Tuesday: Fracture by Megan Miranda

Fracture
Hardcover, 264 pages
Expected publication: January 17th 2012
by Walker & Company

"Decker's dark hair hung in his eyes, and purple circles stretched down toward his cheekbones. I'd never seen him so pale, so hollow. His gaze finally landed on me. 
     "You look like crap," I said, trying to smile. 
     He didn't smile back. He collapsed on the other side of my bed and sobbed. Big, body-shaking sobs. His bandaged fingers clutched at my sheets with every sharp intake of breath. 
     Decker was not a crier. In fact, the only time I'd seen him cry since it became socially unacceptable for a boy to be seen crying was when he broke his arm sliding into home plate freshman year. And that was borderline acceptable. He did, after all, have a bone jutting out of his skin. And he did, after all, score the winning run, which cancelled out the crying."
That's it. I am on page 89 right now, the plot is advancing slowly, but the relationship between Decker and Delaney is keeping me well entertained. There seems to be a secret where Delaney is concerned, something that has to do with why she survived under water for 11 minutes but alas we haven't find out that yet (not like I would tell you anyways, no spoilers!). I am really liking this read, wish it advanced a bit faster, but I still really like it!

  2. I want this book so badly! Have you read Decker's story? I saw a tweet about it, and it's about the time from when Delaney falls through the ice until she wakes up. I haven't read Fracture yet, but I LOVED the short. It was fantastic! Here's a link to where you can read it if you're interested: https://www.facebook.com/FRACTUREBYMEGANMIRANDA?sk=app_160430850678443

  12. I have heard that the plot is a little slow to take off, but entirely worth it once you reach the main point. Very excited to read this one myself! Decker sounds adorable:)

  13. I'm also reading it right now and I'm around the same chapter. I've read that it's a bit slow in the beginning but then gets better.
