The most exciting part of starting my new job at a wonderful high school is the opportunity to read YA and Adult books for my job! Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi is a dystopic novel about a seventeen-year-old girl named Juliette who has been imprisoned because her touch has the power to kill people. She is surprised when a soldier is sent to watch over her and he is someone that she loved as a young girl. Adam volunteered for the position so he could protect her. The leader who has imprisoned her plans to use her power to defeat others. When Adam and Juliette break out, she discovers that Adam is immune to her deadly touch. The two are not safe for long and must learn to trust each other and a friend from Adam's past. This is a quick read that will leave readers wanting to immediately pick up book 2, Unravel Me. Book 3 will be published in February 2014.
