“Rip-roaring adventure and steamy romance scenes, with a relationship teens will root for as much as they did for Bella and Edward. Inventive touches propel the story, such as strikeouts that reveal Juliette’s inner thoughts. The final chapters leave Juliette, Adam, and Warner well poised for round two.” (Booklist)
“Mafi combines a psychological opener with an action-adventure denouement in her YA debut. This is a gripping read from an author who’s not afraid to take risks.” (Publishers Weekly)
“Fans of Cashore’s Fire, Oliver’s Delirium, and, yes, Twilight will find this addictive.” (Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books)
“Teens will feel satisfied yet wait impatiently for more.” (School Library Journal)
EARLY PRAISE FOR UNRAVEL ME:“Unravel Me is dangerous, sexy, romantic, and intense. I dare you to stop reading.” (Kami Garcia, New York Times bestselling co-author of the Beautiful Creatures novels)
About the Author
Tahereh Mafi is a girl. She was born in a small city somewhere in Connecticut and currently resides in Orange County, California, where the weather is just a little too perfect for her taste. When unable to find a book, she can be found reading candy wrappers, coupons, and old receipts. Ignite Me is the final novel in a trilogy about Juliette.

How do I hate thee? Let me count the ways.
I hate thee for thine bizarro, unpunctuated, over-the-top prose that peppers this story from page one on.
'I hate the lackadaisical ennui of a sun too preoccupied with itself to notice the infinite hours we spend in its presence.' P. 26
I hate thee for talking about a bird, every couple of pages, thereby adding a mysterious, crazy-girl ambiance when the reader already knows Juliette is a tinfoil hat away from crazytown.
'There will be a bird today.' P. 9
'There will be a bird.' P. 11
'Maybe a bird will fly today.' P. 28
'Birds used to fly.' P. 36
I've dreamt about the same bird flying through the same sky for exactly 10 years.' P. 36
'I don't know how to find the white bird.' P. 113
'I glance at the window and wonder if I'll ever see a bird fly by.' P. 115
'A white bird with streaks of gold like a crown atop its head. It's flying.' P. 120
'I'm the bird and I'm flying away.' P. 121
'I need to see the bird.' P. 176
I hate thee to the level of shoving this book into a composter, after finishing a particularly silly part about Adam's manly chest and Juliette's need to snuggle.
'My face is pressed against his chest and the world is suddenly bigger, beautiful - -the entire universe stops in place and spins the other direction and I'm the bird.' (Gah, that darned bird again!).Read more ›
Did I hate this book? Nope. I just feel like it could have been so much more, but got seriously weighed down by the writing. Metaphors are cool, but I needed less of the pretty and more action and character development. I did really like Adam. He is a perfect male lead. Not quite sure how I feel about Juliette. She seemed to have badass potential, but as the novel progressed she started to become a little codependent (and horny) for my taste. After a life of exclusion, lack of human touch, and then being imprisoned in isolation you'd think she'd maintain her guarded persona (she didn't). She quickly rolled over and put all her faith in a boy (a cute boy, but still).Read more ›
- She uses one of the following words: dying, thaw, touch, bird, hundred, billion, million, ACHING (bonus drinks if her body actually IS aching and she isn't just feeling emotions through her joints)
- She's "surprised" that some ridiculous, impossible thing HASN'T happened ("I was surprised he didn't explode into a billion pieces," "I was surprised I wasn't covered in blood")
- She says she wants to inflict deathly violence on someone but instead continues throwing a tantrum
- She says "no one had EVER [done that to me]" or "it was the most [adjective] thing I have ever [seen/heard/felt] IN MY ENTIRE LIFE"
- The author uses "gentles" as a verb (as in - "he gentles me onto the bed).
- It is revealed that a character's parents abused them (because every. single. character. has abusive parents)
- A sentence like this pops up - "My body is in a blender." ... "A steam train goes through my head." ... "I am slapped with a two by four." - to jarringly describe emotions
Two shots when you reach these actual quotes in the book:
- "Her life was too glamorous for the leashed legacy of her loins."
- "He was wrong. He was SO wrong. He was more wrong than an upside-down rainbow."
- "His face was a forest of emotions."
- During the "don't the clouds realize that the raindrops SHATTER when they hit the ground? that it BREAKS them?" speech
- "Why are you touching me?" ... "Because... BECAUSE I CAN."
If you ever start wondering "wait wasn't there supposed to be a plot somewhere in here?" DRINK. just keep drinking.
