Last week, the cover art for Tahereh Mafi's upcoming dystopian debut Shatter Me was unveiled. This week, I thought I'd share the trailer for this highly anticipated release:
Coming November 15, 2011!
While I normally prefer people and voices in trailers, I like what they're doing with the text and numbers here. I think the way that a line is written and then crossed out really conveys the main character's struggle with her situation, and I'm really excited to see her grow from thinking of her ability as a "curse" to thinking of it as a "gift." This is set to be a really powerful coming-of-age story. I just wish they'd had voice-overs saying these lines rather than just writing them out -- it would have been even more effective.
What do you think? Does this trailer make you want to read Shatter Me?
