Told from Decker's pov, this 28 page story tells what happened the moment Delaney stood, fell, and got pulled out of the ice.

It shows the strong bond that Decker has for Delaney and also makes you wonder if he feels 'more' than he's letting on.

I enjoyed this pre-quel but I kind of wish there was a little more.

Like, when he was making out with that girl. It's not mentioned.

Or, even the way it's told. This story is in 1st person POV but I think it would have been neater if he was telling Delaney the story. Like if she had already woken up and was back home and he was telling her everything.

While I enjoyed the boy's pov I also felt he was a bit too girly. I know my husband would have laughed at it. He always says that boys act like girls when written by women. But, I guess that's the way we like our fictional guys.

It's a nice short story. I feel I have a better understanding to the beginning of "Fracture".

I don't think it matters if you read this story or the novel first. I read the novel first which I think is the way I would personally recommend to people.
