Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi

Goodreads description:
The last time she did, it was an accident, but The Reestablishment locked her up for murder. No one knows why Juliette's touch is fatal. As long as she doesn't hurt anyone else, no one really cares. The world is too busy crumbling to pieces to pay attention to a 17-year-old girl. Diseases are destroying the population, food is hard to find, birds don't fly anymore, and the clouds are the wrong color.

The Reestablishment said their way was the only way to fix things, so they threw Juliette in a cell. Now so many people are dead that the survivors are whispering war-- and The Reestablishment has changed its mind. Maybe Juliette is more than a tortured soul stuffed into a poisonous body. Maybe she's exactly what they need right now.

Juliette has to make a choice: Be a weapon. Or be a warrior.
This book was fabulous. I reviewed it WAY back in June as part of a Once Upon a Twilight ARC tour and fell head-over-heels in love (you can read my review HERE). I can't wait for my finished copy to ship!! (Geez, get on that Barnes & Noble...)

Here's the fabulous book trailer...




Some awesome reviews of this book...

I was lucky enough to get an ARC of this as well. It was great! I can't wait for my finished copy to arrive as well and to see how the story continues with the next book. From now on when I see the name Juliet/te I'll think Adam and not Romeo :-)
