Fracture - Megan Miranda I enjoyed this book much more than I was anticipating. I’d heard really good things about it, and that it was one of the “most anticipated” books of 2012–but most of the “most anticipated” books this year have fallen short for me, if not tanked entirely. And this? This was finally something truly enjoyable, that held my heart hostage while I engaged with the characters and worked my way into their world. I was engrossed with their relationships, how things would play out, and I found my heart broken and myself in tears on more than one occasion. I’m stoked to see anything else from Miranda in the future, as she truly has a way with words, as, unfortunately, most young adult writers don’t seem to have anymore. I’m excited for what the future brings for this new author!Read more?
