"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.
But Juliette has plans of her own. 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.

Don't let the sample fool you - So Good!
Good story, but SO OVER DRAMATIC.
If you are a tween/teen, yes. this book would be perfect for over emotional teenagers who need constant nonsensical metaphors to describe their feelings.
The kids powers are cool.
Her voice fits Juliette; very breathy and whiney and wah wah wah, poor me, I have super powers and I can't appreciate them.
It annoyed me to know end, because like I said, it was SOOOOO over dramatic. and she is CONSTANTLY using the slash through sentences style of writing and it makes it look freaking retarded. Mafi treats sentences like they're handicapped... This book is filled with over-saturated, painful metaphors like the following:
"He says it with a small smile the size of Jupiter."
"Every organ in my body falls to the ground."
"There are 400 cotton balls caught in my windpipe."
"My mouth is sitting on my kneecaps."
"My jaw is dangling from my shoelace."
"My stomach drops onto my knees."
"I blush through my bones."
"My spine is conducting enough electricity to power a city."
"I am an old creaky staircase when I wake up."
"Warner thinks Adam is a cardboard cutout of vanilla regurgitations."
"I am not insane. I am not insane. I am not insane. I am not insane. I am not insane. I am not insane. I am not insane. I am not insane. I am not insane. I am not insane. I am not insane. I am not insane. I am not insane. I am not insane. I am not insane. I am not insane. I am not insane. I am not insane. I am not insane. I am not insane...."
and that continues on for AN ENTIRE PAGE, and I'm pretty sure it was just filler so her word count was enough for publishing!!!
Okay. There you have it.
If you want to keep the hair on your head, don't bother reading it. Or, if your maturity level is above those who read and loved 50 shades of grey, or any really BAD YA fiction. Read GOOD YA, like JOHN GREEN.
