"You can't touch me," I whisper.

I'm lying, is what I don't tell him.

He can touch me, is what I'll never tell him.

But things happen when people touch me.

Strange things.

Bad things.

No one knows why Juliette's touch is fatal, but The Reestablishment has plans for her. Plans to use her as a weapon.

But Juliette has plans on her own.

After a lifetime without freedom, she's finally discovering a strength to fight back for the very first time—and to find a future with the one boy she thought she'd lost forever.


I finally bit the bullet and read Shatter Me. The only reason I waited so long was because I was waiting for the last one to come out, and it has. This was the February book pick for the book club I participate in.

I liked Juliette. She doesn’t let anyone push her around even when she doesn’t know what all is going on. I’m not a huge Warner fan. He seems like a total d-bag, control freak. Adam kind of drove me nuts too. He’s too serious, and kinda sorta lies about who he is. Kenji, I freaking LOVE this guy. He’s easy going, hilarious, and seems like he has no fear.

I liked the buildup, and the world building. It seems like a pretty dismal place to live. When I got to the end, I began questioning everything! I can’t wait to see what else happens in this series.
