Juliette, the main character in Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi, reminded me a lot of Rogue from X-men. She can't touch anyone because she drains the life out of them. The local leader of the new dictatorship wants to use her abilities to dominate the world. Juliette just craves normalcy and human contact, which she thinks she may never have. Enter Adam, Juliette's new cellmate. He doesn't despise her and says he wants to help her, but can she trust him?
The writing style is unique and takes a little getting used to. It's a little like a journal with crossed out and changed words. Juliette is very descriptive and some of the language she uses to describe things is almost poetic, which makes for an interesting read. And near the end of the story there are more moments that will remind you of X-men.
