Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi

A short blurb about the book from it's goodreads page:

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.


My thoughts:

Okay, I read this book awhile back.  I've been terrible about updating this blog.  However, I will say that this book really stuck with me.  I loved it from page one.  My fingers flew to turn the page.  It was suspensful and just a great story all the way around.  There were times that the descriptions got to be a bit much, but I really did love this book.  I can't wait to read the other books in this series.  I'm giving this one 4 1/2 air kisses (since Juliette can't touch anyone).  :)
