Author: Tahereh Mafi
Series: Shatter Me #1
Genre: Young Adult, Dystopian
Goodreads rating: 4 stars

PLOT SYNOPSIS:

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.

MY REVIEW:

Juliette is in a bad situation. After accidentally killing someone, she is locked away and given to authorities by her own family. As Juliette slowly goes crazy from 264 days of isolation, she has a new cellmate named Adam, she knows him.

After they take her out she meets Warner, the mysterious, attractive, strong, brutal, sexy character and this man is giving her a offer.The Reestablishment tries to get ahold of a dying world and she can be the secret weapon. What they want to do? Are they going to make world a better place to live, or not? Now she has 2 choices. To work for the Reestablishment or to be a rebel. Which way is she going to choose?

As for the characters, Juliette is a pretty girl, yet she’s one of those people that doesn’t realize it either, which I liked. Adam is the I’m-too-good-too-romantic-too-hot-to-be-real guy, but he is so loyal and brave.In my oppinion is a well written book. Tahereh Mafi has a lyrical, methaphorical way of writing, which I liked. The strike-outs are quite interesting as well.

MY RATING: 4.5 stars
