I've got curse I have a present I'm just a monster I am more than just human My feel is lethal My feel is power I'm their gun I'll battle back In exactly 264 days Juliette did not touch anyone. It was an accident the last time she did but she was locked up for murder by T... he Reestablishment. Nobody knows why touching Juliette is fatal. So long as she doesn't hurt anybody else, nobody cares. The world is crumbling too busy to pieces to pay attention to a girl who is 17. Diseases destroy the population, food is difficult to find, birds are no longer flying and clouds are the wrong colour. The Reestablishment said their way was the only way to fix things, so Juliette was thrown into a cell. So many people are dead now that the survivors whisper war – and it has changed their minds. Perhaps Juliette is more than a tortured soul stuffed in a poisonous corpse. Perhaps, right now, she is exactly what they need. Juliette has a choice to make: Be a weapon. Or be some guerrilla.

Quotes from Shatter Me

I'm wearing dead cotton on my limbs and a blush of roses on my face.

I'm oxygen and he's dying to breathe.

Beautiful   Couples   Kiss   Love   Metaphor   Need   Ya

Someone picked up the sun and pinned it to the sky again, but every day it hangs a little lower than the day before. It's like a negligent parent who only knows one half of who you are. It never sees how its absence changes people. How different we are in the dark.

I only know now that the scientists are wrong.
The world is flat.
I know because I was tossed right off the edge and I've been trying to hold on for 17 years. I've been trying to climb back up for 17 years but it's nearly impossible to beat gravity when no one is willing to give you a hand.

My life is four walls of missed opportunities poured in concrete molds.

I am nothing but novocaine. I am numb, a world of nothing, all feeling and emotion gone forever.
I am a whisper that never was.

Reviews of Shatter Me

A dystopic thriller joins the crowded shelves but doesn't distinguish itself.

This is a gripping read from an author who’s not afraid to take risks.

Shatter Me is one awesome debut! There was a wicked awesome plot, a great main character, and one hot love interest. Put that all together and you have a book that you will be sad to miss.

Most of the novel is written in stream of consciousness...Mafi also uses strikethrough in the text, crossing out some of Juliet’s thoughts and replacing them with others...The strikethrough is a bit distracting and it’s difficult to care for Juliette when we know so little about her, even if her circumstances are dreadful.
