Summary: “tick tick tick tick tick 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.” (Summary found on Goodreads).

Tahereh Mafi did not do a good job with this sequel to Shatter Me, which I actually liked. Instead, Unravel Me seemed as though it was a rant. The main character spent the whole book complaining about how horrible her life is. It’s really obnoxious to read paragraphs filled with complaints instead of action and adventure. Plus, there were so many grammatical errors that I could not overlook. As part of the way the book was styled, incomplete sentences were used often. Personally, it drove me insane. There was a bit more violence and romance. I could also have done without the swear words (nothing too bad, it was just the amount). There is only one reason I gave this book two stars instead of one, or even zero, and that is the plot. While the book may be a complete rant, the plot was interesting enough that I kept reading. I am still currently deciding whether or not I am going to read the next and final book because the plot line was so unique and intriguing. I have never read a book like it and I applaud Mafi for creating something so different, but I do not approve of the way she executed it.
