Shatter Me (Shatter Me #1) by Tahereh Mafi

Juliette hasn't touched anyone in exactly 264 days. 

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. 

In this electrifying debut, Tahereh Mafi presents a world as riveting asThe Hunger Games and a superhero story as thrilling as The X-Men. Full of pulse-pounding romance, intoxicating villainy, and high-stakes choices, Shatter Me is a fresh and original dystopian novel—with a paranormal twist—that will leave readers anxiously awaiting its sequel.

My Review 
Woah! This book was good This book was freakin' awesome! It's written in a very unique style, which takes some getting used to, but is perfect for getting a feel for what goes on in Juliette's head. After the life she's had, she has to be at least a little crazy! And the way it's written portrays her thought process very well. She's really very intense & even though she has a great power within her, she is still very loving & fragile. Some of the things she has to go through will make you feel completely desperate while others will have you so full of hope that you're bursting. Prepare to have your emotions twisted into a pretzel and then stomped on. But it will be totally worth it! I am so excited to read more of this story!!
