"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.
But things happen when people touch me.
Strange things.
Bad things.
No one knows why Juliette's touch is fatal, but The Reestablishment has plans for her. Plans to use her as a weapon.
But Juliette has plans of her own.
After a lifetime without freedom, she's finally discovering a strength to fight back for the very first time—and to find a future with the one boy she thought she'd lost forever.

Selena's POV:
This was a really interesting book to read. Really! It was such in a different format, that by the end of Chapter 1, which was at page 6 (I think), I already loved the book! The society in which the characters live in is so creative, it's nothing I've never read. 

I like Juliette, really. She's strong; she knows what she's fighting for. Yet again, I feel bad for her. Her parents gave her up with a snap of their fingers, not caring that their child was being taken away from them. I though that was sad :( Juliette can't touch anyone. Like, NO ONE. If she does, the person she touches dies. That's why she locked up in a cell far away from the world. But when Juliette has a new roommate in her cell, things heat up ... like, a lot! She knows her new roommate, but her new roommate doesn't "know" her. *Roll eyes* Yeah, that's a joke ;)

Now moving onto Adam. Dreamy, amazing Adam. What can I say? He's one out of my thousands of fictional boyfriends! :D He's so sweet. He respects you, and cares for you, and VERY protective. He's big on family and safety. He's such a dream boyfriend!!

For some reason, I thought that the relationship between Adam & Juliette was kinda weird. They talk about their past, but they suddenly "fell in love" in like, a month. Yeah, I know that they knew each other when they were little and stuff, but still. I didn't like how they just fell in love so fast. I felt like they were in a relationship without even knowing each other! But that's just me, I guess ...

Over all, I really loved the book! It was such in a different format, and I loved that! :D
