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 was definitely addicting. The novel was, new and refreshing and great. The writing was my favorite part! The repeated words, the stricken words
Adam, the male flame in this f-up world, is a guy with a lot of mystery. He is a guy with a lot of questions that have been left unanswered (also, he is so sweeeeet). He doesn't intend to be so mysterious all the time, but by the end of the novels I was left with more questions about Adam than answers. Like, for example...
Oh and, careful cause this book is HOT. I have nothing against it, hell bring more of it on, but in every other scene it seemed like Juliette and Adam were having a pretty intense make out section. The sections are pretty hot, and only remain PG-13 cause nothing other than making out actually happens (though it is not due to a lack of trying). Beware, be warned, and above all enjoy.
PS; such a shame I don't have that striking cover T_T
