Sorry...this wasn't for me.

Shatter Me - Tahereh Mafi

I feel so bad and I'm probably in the minority here. I just didn't feel it or get it! I didn't care for the creative writing with the strikeouts and numbers, which were more irritable and distracting.


"1 window. 4 walls. 144 square feet of space."


"My eyes open to 2 eyes 2 lips 2 ears 2 eyebrows..."


"2 knocks at the door startle my emotions back into place."


"There are 400 cotton balls caught in my windpipe."


"But my fist flies through 12 inches of steel like it's made of butter."


I guess this writing style just didn't work for me which also didn't allow me to fully connect to the characters and story. Also, someone said something about X-Men and I felt the same about that at the end as well.
