Synopsis (Goodreads):
In this electrifying sixty-page companion novella to the New York Times bestselling Shatter Me series, discover the fate of the Omega Point rebels as they go up against The Reestablishment. Set during and soon after the final moments of Unravel Me, Fracture Me is told from Adam's perspective.

As Omega Point prepares to launch an all-out assault on The Reestablishment soldiers stationed in Sector 45, Adam's focus couldn't be further from the upcoming battle. He's reeling from his breakup with Juliette, scared for his best friend's life, and as concerned as ever for his brother James's safety. And just as Adam begins to wonder if this life is really for him, the alarms sound. It's time for war.

On the battlefield, it seems like the odds are in their favor—but taking down Warner, Adam's newly discovered half brother, won't be that easy. The Reestablishment can't tolerate a rebellion, and they'll do anything to crush the resistance . . . including killing everyone Adam has ever cared about.
Thoughts on Fracture Me: Just like Destroy Me, this novella shifted my view on one of the main characters. Unfortunately for Adam, this shift is pushing him into the unlikable range.

BUT... seeing as how Tahereh Mafi somehow made me have sympathy for Warner after his supreme doucheyness in book 1, I'm wondering what she's going to pull out of her hat in the final book.

Honestly, it could go any which way. Warner really might be hardass leader we've come to know and hate or he could be a hero who just needed the right set of circumstances to show his colors. Adam could be the brooding jerkwad we see here or he could be Juliette's perfect match. Juliette *might* not be as whiny as in book 2. WHO KNOWS AT THIS POINT.

For the record, I should probably throw out there that I have the final book in my possession and I totally have final book syndrome where I stare at it and can't pick it up because OMG! ONCE I READ IT, THIS IS OVER.

As for Adam, I don't know how I feel about him. I understand where he's coming from as far as James is concerned, but he really is kinda jerky to everyone and unwilling to listen. It's like he has this hidden dislike for everyone around him that comes out at random moments. That said, pressure will do things to a person and make them act uncharacteristically. Is this the case here? I have no idea.

I guess I'll have to buckle down and read the final book to find out.
