Publisher Description

The gripping first installment in New York Times bestselling author Tahereh Mafi’s Shatter Me series.

One touch is all it takes. One touch, and Juliette Ferrars can leave a fully grown man gasping for air. One touch, and she can kill.

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.

And don’t miss Defy Me, the shocking fifth book in the Shatter Me series!

Surprised Face with Open Mouth“The writing in this book was immaculate. Besides the explanation of colors that was very incorrect in my opinion it was one of the best dystopian books I’ve read. It was filled with action and it had you ready for the next chapter everytime you finished one. Very good read !”

Beaming Face with Smiling Eyes“Shatter me by Tahereh Mafi was the book that got me back into reading after years in 2022, I personally have a special love for this book though many people rate it mid or dislike it I think it was amazing and fast paced, just what I needed and what I have grown to like (might be biased though)”

Slightly Smiling Face“When I picked up this book I had no idea what to expect. I went in knowing it was a YA dystopian novel. I was pleasantly surprised! The book was decent (definitely meant for teens) and made me react out loud multiple times. Y’all I’m just gonna say it, Kenji is my favorite character. He is so funny 😭. I didn’t rate this 5⭐️s because I feel the writing wasn’t as mature as I thought it was going to be. Overall, the book is definitely fun to finish in one sitting and I would recommend. :)”
