Review: Eleven Minutes by Megan Miranda

PhotobucketEleven Minutes (short tie-in story to Fracture)
by Megan Miranda

Publisher: Bloomsbury Teen
Release Date: January 17, 2012
Format: eBook 
Genre: Young Adult, Paranormal
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Fracture is told from Delaney's perspective, and if you've read the first two chapters, you know that she falls through the ice in chapter one, and she wakes up 6 days later. And what happens in between—well, that's Decker's story.

This is the story of those eleven minutes, and the six days that follow, from his perspective. Because while it must be terrifying to be trapped under the ice, it's a different kind of terror seeing your best friend trapped...

Especially if it's your fault. (Goodreads)

I loved Megan Miranda's debut novel, Fracture, so I was excited to learn of Eleven Minutes: Exclusive Tie-In Story, a 28 page ebook that is currently only available through the Fracture Facebook fan page. This short tie-in story to Fracture is written from Decker's POV and spans the eleven minutes after Delaney falls into the ice and the time she is in a coma. I loved Decker in Fracture, so this was a treat to read. The story is mostly his inner dialogue of regret and guilt, and his desperation/hope for her to wake up... There's also a peak at his memories of growing up with Delaney, and of their friendship.

I always love reading stories from different points of view, and being able to understand things from a different perspective. I don't think it's necessary to read Fracture before this short story, but I would recommend it. I also really enjoyed reading Miranda's note at the end, and why she was drawn to writing this type of story.

If you haven't read Fracture yet, what are you waiting for?!
