Shatter Me, by Tahereh Mafi
Shatter Me is one of many in the dystopian YA romance genre. It is the first book of a 6 book series and it wasn’t quite as promising as I’d hoped it would be.
The book is told from the perspective of Juliette, a 17-year-old girl whose touch is fatal. Having accidentally caused the death of a boy a few years back, Juliette has been locked up the Reestablishment – the government that had taken control of an Earth rapidly hurtling towards destruction. Locked up alone for almost 3 years, Juliette’s life is turned around when she’s given a roommate one day. A boy named Adam Kent. With Adam’s arrival come a slew of changes that transform her life forever.
