Review- Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi

Goodreads Summary:
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.

Pathetically  insanely hard to shut, Shatter Me will make you want to flip through the pages at an alarmingly high speed.
One touch is all it takes for Juliette to kill destroy anyone. An abandoned child as a result of her dangerous unusual ability, Juliette is thrown by her parents into a new, cold, horrible different world, controlled by the Reestablishment, an entity  claiming working towards making the world a better place. In the 4 walls of her cell, she accidently stumbles upon her love since childhood, Adam. Adam has also faced deadly terrifying problems as a child and has grown up to be one of the few people retaining their humanity. Trapped in the vicious cycle of a hard life and fateful death created by Warner- head of the Reestablishment- Adam and Juliette become obviously inseparable and overcome tons of obstacles to save the life of Adam’s younger brother, James and so many others. There then comes another Institution that is trying to actually, really do something about the current horrible conditions. This is where Castle, head of Omega Point comes into the picture along with secret agent and Adam’s friend, Kenji (who is gorgeous fun to have around). Along with the help of everyone at Omega Point, Juliette and others like her out there will try to control their abilities and use it for some heroic good deeds.
Shatter Me is a fast- paced, immensely gripping story about a cold world, where people with weird unusual abilities reside. A battle to save civilization and humanity, the book is a spectacular read, counting the interesting strikethroughs. Something you should not even think about giving a miss.
Go ahead, prepare to be shattered immersed in this cool read! I am eagerly awaiting the next book in the series.
X 4.5
