Review of Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi

Juliette hasn’t touched anyone in exactly 264 days.

The last time she did, it was an accident, but The Reestablishment locked her up for murder. No one knows why Juliette’s touch is fatal. As long as she doesn’t hurt anyone else, no one really cares. The world is too busy crumbling to pieces to pay attention to a 17-year-old girl. Diseases are destroying the population, food is hard to find, birds don’t fly anymore, and the clouds are the wrong color.

The Reestablishment said their way was the only way to fix things, so they threw Juliette in a cell. Now so many people are dead that the survivors are whispering war– and The Reestablishment has changed its mind. Maybe Juliette is more than a tortured soul stuffed into a poisonous body. Maybe she’s exactly what they need right now.

Juliette has to make a choice: Be a weapon. Or be a warrior.

Shatter Me as of late have seen on many blogs as well as reads picked up by dedicated readers. While its dystopian and sort of the type of novel compared to novels out there it also is really unique. Tahareh uses a lot of numbers and description to get her point across. While at times its confusing it's also really interesting to read. In any case easy to enjoy as a good entertainment.

Juliette has been locked up by a new governement regime that got established when the world slipped io manto a haphazardouswant to even existence. People hardly can survive at all know. While everyone has been dying Juliette has been locked up in an insane asylum. The reason is for having the lethal touch to snuff out people's life. Her power was discovered by the authorities after she accidentally killed little boy. Warner a military leader's son of the new government which is The Reestablishment has had his eye on Juliette. Finally he's called for her and is trging to get her trust so she can become part of his team of murderers in society. Juliette though doesn't want to even if society has hurt her so much. Warner though is intent on making Juliette part of his team but also wants her to want him. Juliette though feels something more for Adam a boy she can remember from way back before even before the  Re-establisment was all powerful.  Adam also seems to know though they can't be together, so they must plan an escape plan to be together. Warner though isn't going to make it easy for them. He's obsessed with Juliette's power and with her also!

He's not exactly the good guy obviously but actually like with Juliette since he's so very fascinating. Although he can off very strongly. He's just more there than Adam. Get to reading to find it out for yourselves.
Overall: Amazing read!
Genre: Science Fiction, Dystopian, Young Adult, Romance
