Ignite Me by Tahereh Mafi - ADVISABLE

Mafi, Tahereh  Ignite Me, 408 pgs. Harper, 2014.  $17.99  Content: Language: PG-13(200+ swears); Mature Content: PG-13 (undress each other, and heated make out sessions); Violence: PG-13.  

In the final book in the Shatter Me series, Juliette wakes up after being shot in the chest and decides to ally with Warner, her enemy, against the Reestablishment and especially against Warner’s father, Anderson.  Juliette begins to trust Warner and has to convince the survivors of Omega Point to believe in Warner.  Juliette and her friends train at Warner’s compound and have to come up with a plan to bait Anderson to Sector 45, so they can bring down Anderson’s reign of terror.   

I love this series.  Some reviews complain about the author’s stream of conscience style of writing, but I think she is a great writer and makes the reader feel what the characters are feeling.  This is a satisfying conclusion to this series, even though it is sad to let these characters and their world come to an end.  There are a lot of swears, but I still loved it and feel like there are girls out there who would devour this series.  

 MS-OPTIONAL, HS-ADVISABLE.  Reviewer, C. Peterson.
