I run a blog with my best friend, Em - we love Young Adult literature.

Shatter Me - Tahereh Mafi What is it like to feel different? weird? UNIQUE. Juliette is a girl; a girl who can't be touched by another human being without inflicting pain on them. And she has been locked up for this. Until one day, she's released - under the condition that she be used as a weapon. But she has plans of her own.

This book is about so much more than a girl who has supernatural powers. It's about what it's like to be considered "different" in society. And how you can overcome that feeling and find acceptance within yourself. It's about finding love and how that love can make anything possible. It can change the way you see yourself and the way you see the world.

Tahereh Mafi's debut novel blew me away. I finished it in one sitting and found myself begging for the more at the end. And while I felt like the first half of the book was more character driven (which I liked a lot!), I LOVED the action-packed second half of the novel.

If you loved The Hunger Games, you're going to gobble this one up!
