One touch is all it takes. Shatter Me discusses the story of Juliette Ferrars, whose one touch is fatal and can leave even a fully grown man paralyzed, gasping for air.

To others, it seems as if Juliette is hurting her surroundings, but she considers her power a curse and, instead, a burden.

But the Reestablishment sees her power as a gift and an opportunity for a dangerous weapon. Though Juliette has never fought for herself, she is reunited with the one who ever cared about her. And then, she finds a strength she never knew she had. But will she be able to survive and save the ones she loves or become a weapon in the hands of the Reestablishment?

Shatter Me Review

Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi is all about the idea of power. Some people are hungry for it, while others show restraint and reverence for others. The synopsis of the book clears that Juliette is isolated from the world, and because of her power, she is treated as a monster.  The theme explores physical and emotional isolation, alienation, self-loathing, and control.

Overall, this book is a beautifully-written YA, enemies to lovers, that holds the power to obsess the readers with its interesting dystopian plot.
