Waiting on Wednesday (9)

Waiting on Wednesday is a fabulous meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine where we can show the books we are eagerly awaiting released (or would give our left arms to get our hands on).

Title: Shatter Me
Author: Taherah Mafi
Release Date: 15th November 2011
Publisher: Harper/Harper Collins
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 as The 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.
- From Goodreads

I like the premise of this novel and I enjoy a book where one choice can take a person one way or another, and being able to look at a character and see them from another perspective (kind of like the devil, bad guy or just doing a job keeping all the bad guys in hell? hmmmm...).
