Unravel Me Review

Title:  Unravel Me
Author:  Tahereh Mafi
Expected publication: February 5th 2013 by HarperCollins

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.

Juliette is now living at Omega Point.  There are people, like her, with special abilities living there, but Juliette still feels like an outsider.  Will she ever find acceptance?  She finds comfort in Adam.  He can touch her and not be hurt.  Will there happiness last or will something happen, like always, to change the one good thing Juliette has in her life?

Juliette also finds herself making new friends like Kenji, the lovable and laughable solider who helped her, Adam, and Adam's brother escape to Omega Point.  Maybe, just maybe, Juliette will find where she belongs.  However, Warner is still out there searching for Juliette.  She knows Warner won't stop especially now that he knows he can touch Juliette, too.  He wants her like Adam does but with an intensity that frightens and intrigues Juliette.  Will Warner find her, and when he does who will Juliette choose?

Other things plague Juliette's mind as well.  The leader of Omega Point, Castle, wants Juliette to learn to harness her powers to help the resistance fight The Reestablishment.  While she wants to help fight the evil she's seen The Reestablishment carry out, Juliette wonders how helping Omega Point with her powers is any different from what Warner wanted her to do.  Can she find a way to live with herself and accept her powers if it's all in the name of good?

All the questions and concerns facing Juliette will be answered in this breathtaking sequel to Shatter MeUnravel Me is a definite must-read, but just make sure you read Shatter Me first because it too is not to be missed.  I can't wait for the next book in this wonderful series!
