No one knows why Juliette has such incredible power. It feels like a curse, a burden that one person alone could never bear. But The Reestablishment sees it as a gift, sees her as an opportunity. An opportunity for a deadly weapon.
Juliette has never fought for herself before. But when she’s reunited with the one person who ever cared about her, she finds a strength she never knew she had.
GBC Review by Sofia S.
Hey GBC! This month’s book is Shatter Me by Tehereh Mafi. It takes place in the future, where the earth has rebelled against humanity, and the environment is a mess. Enter Juliette, a 17 year old girl who has the ability to kill with a single touch. She’s spent the most of her life in mental wards where she couldn’t accidentally hurt people, but when The Reestablishment tries to use her as a weapon, she has to figure out how to fight back. The narration in the book is kind of odd, there are a lot of crossed out passages to show Juliette’s kind of screwed-up train of thought, but I liked the story. My favourite parts of the book are when Juliette figures out how to make her own life better, instead of waiting for someone else to tel her how. I would recommend this book to 12-16 year old girls.
