it's almost
time for war.

Juliette has escaped to Omega Point. It is a place for people like her—people with gifts—and it is also the headquarters of the rebel resistance.

She's finally free from The Reestablishment, free from their plan to use her as a weapon, and free to love Adam. But Juliette will never be free from her lethal touch.

Or from Warner, who wants Juliette more than she ever thought possible.

In this exhilarating sequel to Shatter Me, Juliette has to make life-changing decisions between what she wants and what she thinks is right. Decisions that might involve choosing between her heart—and Adam's life. 

My Thoughts: 
Tahereh Mafi gives Juliette a distinct style of voice that I cannot even begin to compare to other YA novels because, really, there is no comparison in the first place. The abundance of similes and metaphors, as well as crossed out words, reveal Juliette's heart and soul. The narration is completely unique and original. Juliette has such an imaginative way of viewing the world; she sees the infinite possibilities and describes everything with heightened senses and a rush of emotion.

Don't get me wrong, I like Adam, but Unravel Me further cemented my love for Warner even more. The complexities to Warner's character captivate me in a way that I simply don't feel for Adam. The morality of Warner's actions can be questionable, but I've never doubted that he genuinely cares about Juliette and wants the best for her. We see another side of Warner in Unravel Me, one which shows his vulnerability.

Kenji is too awesome for words. He is such a good friend to Juliette. When her confidence wavers, he doesn't allow her to wallow in self-pity. He calls her out and tells her to toughen up in a way that no one else has ever dared or bothered to try. Everyone has their personal problems, but you can't allow them to stop you.

We learn more about Juliette, Adam, and Warner's special abilities in Unravel Me, and Tahereh Mafi proves she still has quite a few surprises up her sleeve. Adam has always been a pillar of strength for Juliette, but she begins to understand that she can't always depend on him – she has to stand on her own two feet. Time is running out for Juliette and her friends at Omega Point, and the feared leader of The Reestablishment is ready to crush them all. The explosive conclusion will leave you desperate to read Ignite Me, the final novel in the trilogy, immediately.
