    "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.

    Would you try another book from Tahereh Mafi and/or Kate Simses?

    I really did not like the writing style in this book. Not sure I would enjoy any other books by the same author if this is the normal writing style used.


    Any additional comments?

    I really did not like this book. It dragged in too many places and couldn't keep my attention. I did not finish the book because I got tired of waiting for the story to blossom. I have NEVER quit a book without completing it. I have always followed through to the end but I could not make myself with this one.

    When 15-year-old Clary Fray heads out to the Pandemonium Club in New York City, she hardly expects to witness a murder - much less a murder committed by three teenagers covered with strange tattoos and brandishing bizarre weapons. Then the body disappears into thin air. It's hard to call the police when the murderers are invisible to everyone else and when there is nothing, not even a smear of blood, to show that a boy has died. Or was he a boy?

    Would you listen to City of Bones again? Why?

    Probably not. I got these books for my 12 year old son, I listened to them before giving them to him so I would know if they were appropriate. Good books, but I found them more appealing to younger readers. But not for my kids.


    Any additional comments?

    These books are great. I know my son would LOVE them with all of the fantasy in it. But I was surprised at things that were in here that I do not want my son exposed to at this age. I understand that he will eventually (if not already) be exposed to things but I am not going to introduce things like this into his mind. Two of the conflicts I have with these books for my son are:
    Gay/Bi-Sexual Characters
    Incest Relationship

    I do not feel that is appropriate for my son and I did not give him these books as a result. I was glad I listened to them before giving them to him. I did enjoy the books in this series and I do suggest it - I just feel like parents may want to know this before allowing their kids to read/listen to the books!
