I'm glad I kept reading because the last half was so much better than the first half. The writing style changes, the crossing out almost completely stops, and the repetition becomes much less frequent. There wasn't a lot that kept me reading in the beginning, mostly just the good reviews. And it still wasn't an overall favorite of mine. But the ending holds so much promise for the next book, I'm actually excited for it. If you like X-Men, read this, and keep reading until the end. I give Shatter Me 3 stars.
