"You can't touch me," I whisper.
I'm lying, is what I don't tell him.
He can touch me, is what I'll never tell him.
But things happen when people touch me.
Strange things.
Bad things.
No one knows why Juliette's touch is fatal, but The Reestablishment has plans for her. Plans to use her as a weapon.
After a lifetime without freedom, she's finally discovering a strength to fight back for the very first time—and to find a future with the one boy she thought she'd lost forever.
I'm pretty sure that there are 14 reviews for Shatter Me on ReadingTeen already, but I just finished listening to the audiobook and I think it definitely deserves another review!

My thoughts:
The Shatter Me audiobook was absolutely incredible.
The narrator, Kate Simses did an excellent job of capturing Juliette's emotions.
Also, she actually sounds like a 17 year old!! I can't tell even begin to describe to you how big of a difference that makes! I've probably said this before but oh well... It gets very frustrating for me whenever I am listening to a book and the narrator sounds like a 30 year old trying to sound like a 17 year old.
Anyway though, Kate Simses was so so so perfect!
I loved loved loved how I could hear every time Juliette scratched out a word.
Basically, anything that Tahereh Mafi does, says, or is a part of is great. And I am going to love it.
Just expect that.
Because this woman, is a freaking genius.
