Publisher Description

Juliette and Warner’s story continues in the thrilling fifth installment of Tahereh Mafi’s New York Times bestselling Shatter Me series.

Juliette Ferrars isn’t who she thinks she is.

Nothing in her world is what it seemed. She thought she’d finally defeated the Reestablishment. She thought she’d finally taken control of her life, her power, and her pain. But Juliette has only just begun to unravel a lifetime of lies, and she finds herself faced with a familiar choice: 

Be a weapon. Or be a warrior. 

This time, she’s not alone. Stronger, braver, and more resilient than ever, Juliette will fight for life and love with her friends by her side—but first, she has to survive the war being waged against her mind:

She has to remember who she was.

Narrated by Juliette, Warner, and Kenji Kishimoto, this gripping novel will leave readers hungry for Imagine Me, the sixth novel in the series.

Slightly Smiling Face“4.5 stars This book was the second most dystopian novel in the Shatter Me series. Especially because of everything that is discovered about Juliette, Warner, etc. I don’t want to give too much away but yeah I really enjoyed this book! Juliette and Warner were amazing again Kenji is still a hopeless romantic Majority of the characters are psycho And I think that more or less covers it! The only thing that I liked a bit less is that a lot changed about a lot of the character’s past, and it was maybe just a bit too much for me. I’m still glad that I read past Ignite Me although I really enjoyed how the series ended there and just hope that the next book has a great ending as well!”
