I would actually rate this 3 1/2 stars. I enjoyed the book and interestingly I liked the POV and how the author handled the narration. The main character spends a great deal of time talking to herself (even when she is speaking with someone) or writing her thoughts down. I liked seeing the self-editing that went on in her head.
I would definately describe this as a dystopia storyline although, the entire book centers around Juliette and her inability to touch people without risking killing them.
This is a multiple book story but I found the ending of part 1 was handled in a way that did not frustrate me as a reader. That being said and despite liking the story I'm not sure I would continue on to read the second in the series
