Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi
Teen. Dystopian. Paranormal. Romance. Quick Read. Lacks depth.
This book is typical of the genre but is written with lots of crossed out words and repitition to indicate the main character's lack of sanity or shatteredness or something. It is not very original and is lacking in detail and development of characters and concepts. Juliette, who is 17, because in all teen romances the girls are 17, has strong superhero type powers but she chooses not to use them because she has never learned how to control them, does not want to hurt anyone and she is a wimp.
