Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi
Most of the population likes to have some sort of thrill while reading a book. I can say that there a quite a few in Tahereh Mafi’s, Shatter Me. The main character, Juliette Ferrars, has an unusual power. Her touch is poisonous; causing almost everyone she touches pain and agony. She also has this super strength that accommodates her poisonous touch. I say almost because there are few that are immune to her poisonous touch, for example, Adam Kent. Adam is sent into Juliette’s cell in the asylum to examine her. He is a soldier for the Reestablishment, and more importantly for a man named Warner. The reason Adam was sent into her cell is because he knew Juliette. Juliette and Adam went to school together before a certain incident happened. There, they grew hidden feelings for each other; even though they didn’t talk to each other. Warner was fascinated with Juliette. He soon found he too was immune to her touch. Adam and Juliette ran away in order to protect her from Warner’s power and corruption. Their love for each other seemed to become helpful in their escape.
I believe this book is fantastic. I love the author repeats words and sometimes crosses things out in the book. Throughout the book I felt the familiar of “what’s going to happen next.” This book would appeal to female audiences more than it would appeal to the male. This book is definitely full of thrills, and I can’t wait for the next book in the series. Kiyahana S., Teen Reveiwer.
