Review: Shatter Me

Reminiscent of Rogue from X-Men. 

Juliette isn't your typical girl. Her gifts surpass charm and physical strength. She is dangerous; a girl whose touch will kill you before escape comes to mind. The only person who isn't affected by her power is Adam. But can he cross his boss Warner -- also mesmerized by Juliette -- and help her flee before the Reestablishment turns her into a weapon?

Although, I admit that writing off a girl as a threat might make her appear rough and unsexy, Tahereh Mafi took things a bit too far by turning Juliette into a guy magnet. From Adam, Warner, to Kenji, Juliette attracted everyone from the opposite sex. The Reestablishment even forced her to wear alluring dresses. But all in all, it is the strike text every two pages that posed the real distraction. 

Hopefully, the sequel Unravel Me provides more answers.
