Shatter Me
By Tahereh Mafi

4 out of 5

Juliette has never touched anyone, without hurting them. Now she is locked up, being kept there for death or something worse. But then she gets a roommate. A boy roommate. A boy roommate that she has tried to forget, but could never never never forget. Adam. The Reestablishment has plans to use Juliette as a weapon, but that is not what she wants. All Juliette wants is to be loved. But how can you be loved when everyone you touch suffers? Will Adam be able to help, or will he be part of the enemy?

In love with this book. I absolutely adore the writing style. The descriptions are so vivid and, coming from me, that's saying a lot. 99% of the time, I will choose pages and pages of dialogue over one paragraph of description, but this book. Wow. I felt like I was sitting in that cell, feeling the darkness, the fear, the desperation. I was uncomfortable when Juliette was uncomfortable, alive when she was alive. Again the writing style, awesome. The repetition and crossing out really adds a personal touch to the story, and allows the reader to really get into Juliette's mind. Book two, Unravel Me, comes out in early Frebruary 2013.
