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. 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?
For fans of best-sellers like Before I Fall and If I Stay, this is a fascinating and heart-rending story about love and friendship and the fine line between life and death.
When I started this book I was extremely intrigued by it. Delaney has a horrible accident, and wakes up when she most likely would have died from it. Then she doesn't know how to handle everything going on. And she also seems to have some sort of gift. She knows when people are about to die now. And she meets someone else whose been through the same things she has, and they start a relationship. But then she realizes that maybe she can't trust him as much as she thought. Okay I don't want to ruin anything so I won't go into details. But I didn't like this book. The main reason was I felt like I couldn't connect to the characters. I hated that Delaney, and Decker could never tell each other how they felt yet they both knew how they felt. They still went out with other people, and did stupid things. There was a lot of stuff in this book that just seemed pointless. Then the ending didn't really answer any of the questions that had risen during the book. So I do not recommend this book. It was slightly boring, and lacked depth.
