Peek Inside Fragile Line

Sixteen-year-old Ellie Cox is losing time. It started out small...forgetting a drive home or a conversation with a friend. But her blackouts are getting worse, more difficult to disguise as forgetfulness. When Ellie goes missing for three days, waking up in the apartment of a mysterious guy—a guy who is definitely not her boyfriend—her life starts to spiral out of control. Now, perched on the edge of insanity, with horrific memories of her childhood leaking in, Ellie struggles to put together the pieces of what she’s lost.

When I’m asleep, I’m afraid someone else might take my place.

It can happen in a flash. One minute she’s kissing her boyfriend, the next she’s lost in the woods. Sixteen-year-old Ellie Cox is losing time. It started out small…forgetting a drive home or a conversation with a friend. But her blackouts are getting worse, more difficult to disguise as forgetfulness. When Ellie goes missing for three days, waking up in the apartment of a mysterious guy — a guy who is definitely not her boyfriend—her life starts to spiral out of control.

Perched on the edge of insanity, with horrific memories of her childhood leaking in, Ellie struggles to put together the pieces of what she’s lost—starting with the name haunting her, Gwen. Heartbreakingly beautiful and intimately drawn, this poignant story follows one girl’s harrowing journey to finding out who she really is.


"Brooklyn Skye wrote a five star book. She filled it with five star characters that were both strong and sympathetic." --New Adult Addiction

"This is a DARING, RISKY story that the author has written... Amazing." -Jenna Does Books "The need to know what's causing Ellie's blackouts and what's happening during them is fierce!" --Pretty Little Pages

"...absolutely stunning. Brooklyn Skye has a talent in world building and storytelling and I'm telling you--you do not want to miss this book." --Grownup Fangirl

Who wouldn't wish to read it after that book summary? As soon as I saw this book on NetGalley I knew that I had to read it (thank you Entangled Teen) because... Okay, do I really have to explain it? Girl is having a blackouts and waking up in the apartment of a hot guy. Who calls her Gwen. And her ...more

Quick gif review:

Full Review:
Usually, I write out my reviews after I've had a minute day or so to think about them. I'm really bad about doing a knee jerk reaction and realizing I was too generous later on. But no. I finished this book two hours ago. Since then I've: made my boyfriend nearly late ...more

Holy Crap
Hoooooolyyyy Craaaaap.
When I read the summary to this book I was so excited to read it and huge expectations, and it came through for me.

It went through all the phases’s of Ellies mental disorder: Before she knew, Deal ...more

and now, for one of my favourite reads of 2017, i present to you........................FRRRRRRAGILE LINE!


Fragile Line, written by Brooklyn Skye, is a surprisingly dynamic, plot-driven and well executed book, all of which took me COMPLETELY BY STORM. I must say, before I purchased th ...more

*based on an ARC edition

I was wildly impressed by Fragile Line. The novel takes us into the shared brain of Ellie and Gwen, who share the memories of horrific abuse in their childhood. The thing is, Gwen was created by Ellie to protect her from the pain; it's called dissociative personality disorde ...more

By Jennifer April 30, 2014

I received a copy of this book to review for my stop on the blog tour at Donnie Darko Girl.

When I began reading Fragile Line, I had forgotten what the synopsis said and think my enjoyment of the story was enhanced from not remembering. All I knew was that after how much I adored Stripped, I'll read ...more

By Patricia September 12, 2016

I got this e-ARC throughout Netgalley from publisher in exchange of an honest review.


Okay, so, basically, this is impossible to review without any spoilers because synopsis don't give much away. In fact, this review will probably be one big spoiler so if you don't feel like findi ...more

By TheFictionFairy April 09, 2014

Wow, what can I say about this book, but WOW! The synopsis gave very vague information which was terrific because it really allowed your mind to wander while you were reading this fantastic story. Unlike Mara Dyer which was a poorly done psychological thriller, Fragile Line was wonderfully executed ...more

By Paula April 03, 2014

One of my favourite publishing companies is Entangled Publishing and they have released a new edgy content teen fiction novel which had me so excited and once I started reading it, I could not put it down as it was so awesome. The novel takes us into the life of Ellie who we learn has been experien ...more

By Kelly April 26, 2014


This isn't a book you can say you loved. Aspects of the story are to horrible to love. But you can love the characters and you can love the way the tale twists, tighter and tighter, until you're as desperate as Ellie to figure out what the hell is going on. You can love the writing, whic ...more

By Riley April 22, 2014

Wow. Phew! This book was a serious emotional roller coaster and I loved it from the first page! I was sucked in by the sample and I had to run back to Amazon to download the rest of the book. Brooklyn Skye knows how to write deep characters that leap off the page. I had my doubts on how this would t ...more

By Cindi May 27, 2014

Wow, this book kept me on the edge of my seat. It was trippy in the most awesome way, and it was so well done. I can't say much without giving anything away, and while I loved Shane, I fell pretty hard for Griffin. This book was definitely an emotional ride, and I recommend it if you're looking for ...more

By Stephanie April 22, 2014

'Fragile Line' is a unique and compelling young adult novel that blends an intense mystery alongside realistic fiction dealing with mental health issues. The book follows our heroine, Elizabeth "Ellie" Cox, who has been experiencing blackouts - chunks of missing time and memories - for the majority ...more

By Stacie October 01, 2014

This book, I read it mostly while on the way to work and nearly missed my stop on the train a few times because I was so engrossed in the book. Even though I really enjoyed this books, and I did believe me, its hard to write a review for it without completely giving away the punch line because it do ...more

Let me say, I had no idea what the basis for this book was when I agreed to review it. I read the summary after I started the book because I was like “wait. Am I missing something important?” The ...more

My Rating: 5 stars

Review - I don't know why but for some reason I got it in my mind when I first requested this book that it was about parallel universes and maybe it was because I had been looking at a different book that was about that or whatever but that's what I thought. I was wrong. I don't kn ...more

By Brandi April 28, 2014

I wanted to read Fragile Line because I was intrigued by Ellie and if her blackouts were something mental or if there was something else going on. I usually enjoy books about mental illnesses as well as memory loss.

I felt for Ellie, and even though I knew that she was somewhat of an unreliable na ...more

Who wouldn't want to read this after that synopsis? I won a copy of this book in a giveaway and I didn't know anything about this book until I started reading it. This isn't the kind of book for everyone. Since it's a dark Young Adult contemporary. It deals with horrible issues (drugs, alco ...more

The synopsis for this book was so compelling, I knew when I first read it that I had to read this book as soon as possible. (Thank you, Entangled Teen, for the early look.) It sounded unique and intriguing... a hint of romance, a hint of mystery. N ...more

Solid 5 Stars.
WOW. Just wow. I read this book in one sitting and it was worth it!

Being at school is the last I remember. Why can't I remember driving home? Or eating dinner? Or seeing any of my family? Going to bed? Homework? What the hell?

Mind. Blown.

I must first say BRAVO(x1000) to Brooklyn Skye for a job well--WELL--done. FRAGILE LINE is unlike any book I've read before, and exactly what I want to read more of. In the vein of some of my favorite series/movies (which ones, I can't say because I'm not a spoilery reviewer), FRAGILE LI ...more

By Emily♥ April 18, 2014

I hate to say that a book “surprises” me, because that makes it seem like I went in thinking this book would be shit. I try to start a book with no prior grievances. No spoilers. Reading no reviews. A fresh slate for me to make up my own mind.

So I guess when I say it surprised me, I mean that I didn ...more

This book was given to me for a fair and honest review*

Yowza! I could not put Fragile Line down. Once I started, it completely grabbed me and made me keep going until I reached the end. This is one of those books that you can seriously get a hangover from….

Ellie’s story is extremely compel ...more
