By the time Delaney Maxwell was pulled from a Maine lake's icy waters by her best friend, Decker Phillips, her heart had stopped beating. Her brain had stopped working. She was dead.

But somehow Delaney survived--despite the brain scans that show irreparable damage. Everyone wants Delaney to be fine, but she knows she's far from normal. Pulled by strange sensations she can't control or explain, Delaney now finds herself drawn to the dying, and when she meets Troy Varga, a boy who recently emerged from a coma with the same abilities, she is relieved to share this strange new existence. Unsure if her altered brain is predicting death or causing it, Delaney must figure out if their gift is a miracle, a freak of nature--or something else much more frightening....

Praise for Fracture:

"Miranda’s riveting plot drives to an equally tense climax as she gracefully weaves together themes of suffering, compassion, jealousy, friendship, and trust. The fluid writing, empathetic characters, and big questions raised elevate this paranormal romance into a haunting meditation on what it means to be human and to truly live." -Starred review from Publishers Weekly

"...a compelling medical thriller-cum-romance that proves to be surprisingly life-affirming." -The Washington Post

“a coming-of-age story that doubles as a medical mystery in the vein of an episode of “House’” –The Boston Globe

“A page turner. From start to finish.” –Girls’ Life

“Readers will think about Fracture hours, perhaps days, after they complete it.” –
