Waiting on Wednesday: FRACTURE by Megan Miranda

“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.  This week I’m waiting on FRACTURE by Megan Miranda.

FRACTURE

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?

Walker Books for Young Readers (January 17, 2012)

Icy Maine waters & coming back from the dead–I’m already getting shivers!  And maybe I’m just judging a book by it’s (gorgeous) cover, but I have a funny feeling that a lot of reviewers will describe FRACTURE as “chilling.”
What’s your pick of the week?
