Juliette, a sad and lonely girl afraid to hurt anyone else who touches her, with a gift and curse so powerful it can kill people. Nobody wanted to be around her because they saw how dangerous she is. Her parents didn't want her, cursing her for making their lives the way it is.
Now with a world with no hope and no life, The Reestablishment has come into power, killing any and everyone who doesnt belong. Using Juliettes powers as a weapon. With no one to stand up to them and try to stop them Juliette is finally discovering a strength to fight back for the very first time.
"You can't touch me," I whisper. I'm lying, is what i don't tell him. He can touch me, is what I'll never tell him. Please touch me, is what i want to tell him. But things happen when people touch me. Strange things. Bad things. Dead things. I cant remember the warmth of any kind of embrace. My arms ache from the inescapable ice of isolation. My own mother couldn't hold me in her arms. My father couldn't warm my frozen hands. I live in a world of nothing. Hello. World. Y ou will forget me."
The main idea to this book is when people try to knock you down, get right back up, it may be hard, but fighting back is the only success you can receive for yourself.
