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!

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Juliette, 17, feels as if she is a monster. Her touch causes pain even death. She begins her story from an isolation room in a facility for undesirables, but everything changes when the leader of the Reestablishment offers to keep her by his side if she will agree to help quell the resurgence movement. Juliette wants nothing to do with Warner and his evil ways, but she reconnects with one of his soldiers, Adam, who is immune to her curse, and this lifelong friend becomes much more as he shatters her with the incredible sensation of a loving touch. There are plot conveniences and melodramatic writing to spare in this first novel, but it also offers a rip-roaring adventure and steamy romance scenes, along with a relationship that teens will root for as much as they did for Bella and Edward. Inventive touches also help propel the story, such as the text strikeouts that reveal Juliette's inner thoughts. The final chapters leave Juliette, Adam, and Warner well poised for round two.--Dobrez, Cindy Copyright 2010 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Mafi combines a psychological opener with an action-adventure denouement in her YA debut, and the result is a page-turner with a slightly split personality. Juliette Ferrars is 17 and cannot remember a loving touch; indeed, after 264 days in solitary confinement, she can barely remember human contact. Then a boy is shoved into her cell, and her world changes. Just as she begins to trust Adam, guards burst in and march them off to the commandant. Juliette discovers Adam is really a soldier of the Reestablishment, a totalitarian regime that wants to use Juliette because her touch can kill. Juliette wants to get far away from anyone she can hurt or who can hurt her-though she can't help hoping that, somehow, Adam might not fall in either of those categories. Mafi doesn't escape some rookie pitfalls; descriptions like "fifteen thousand feelings of disbelief hole-punched in my heart" strain after lyricism, and proof that the divided plot can be brought to a satisfying conclusion must await later installments. Nevertheless, this is a gripping read from an author who's not afraid to take risks. Ages 14-up. (Nov.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved."
