Published in 2011, Mafi’s dystopian thriller takes place in a post-apocalyptic landscape where an international group known as The Reestablishment rule what remains of the Earth’s habitable land. Much like The Hunger Games, the world of the Shatter Me books resembles what might be described as a near future: a world ruled by an authoritarian government and plagued by disease, food shortages and climate crises. Our narrator is the 17-year-old Juliette, a girl cursed with a lethal touch which has led her to being held captive, accused of murder. When the tyrannous Reestablishment decides to use Juliette as a weapon, she too has a unenviable choice to make—be a tool or be a fighter.
