Tara’s CBR-III Review #48: Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi

Cannonball Read III: Book #48/52
Published: 2011
Pages: 352 (189,097 total pages so far)
Genre: Young Adult/Dystopian

First of all, the cover for this book is terrible. I never would have picked it out if I didn’t read a review without the cover picture in it. It looks like some horrible YA supernatural romance with wolves or something. It takes place in a grungy, dystopian society so I have no idea why she’s wearing this sparkly white ball gown on the book cover.
The book starts with Juliette being locked in some sort of filthy jail. We find out that she was locked away by her parents after they discovered she was a “monster” because her touch can kill people. She’s been in isolation for a couple of years, when suddenly she gets a new cellmate. A BOY cellmate. (possible spoilers ahead…) Turns out, he’s just there to capture and deliver her to this creep in the Reestablishment military who wants to use her as a weapon. She falls in love with the boy who manipulated her (Adam) and they run away until they find a school for freaks just like her (end spoilers). Hm…where have I heard this plot before??
