Shatter Me - Review

Shatter Me by: Tahereh Mafi
Goodreads Summary: 
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 Review:
AMAZING! I had been wanting to read this one for a while, but I never could get myself to pick it up. The idea of a young girl's touch being fatal is different, but exciting all in one. This page turner, nail bitter novel had me up way to late to finish it in about 1 day.

 After always being told that she was different, somebody wants to use her gift... but maybe not for the right reasons. Juliette is taken and forced to use her power for bad. Her adventure and decision of how to fight had me holding on to every word. I'm so excited that this was only the first book in the series, I look forward to seeing how the author continues this story!
