I should be ashamed of myself. Not only did I read the (bad) reviews before reading the book, I read reviews AFTER reading the book and have (almost) nothing original to say about it! In fact, I AM ashamed of myself, but I wanted to write about it anyway.
By the way, I read this back in January, and wrote the first draft of this review way back then.
Brief summary of the book can be found on Good Reads. I will copy and paste the first paragraph:
The last time she did, it was an accident, but The Reestablishment locked her up for murder. No one knows why Juliette’s touch is fatal. As long as she doesn’t hurt anyone else, no one really cares. The world is too busy crumbling to pieces to pay attention to a 17-year-old girl. Diseases are destroying the population, food is hard to find, birds don’t fly anymore, and the clouds are the wrong color.
The review is kind of spoiler-ish…
