Waiting on Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine to shine a spotlight on upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi
342 pages
Harper/HarperCollins, to be released on November 15th 2011

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.

This book they all said it's amazing! :) Juliette seems like a really good character in the middle of the whole war that is going on. I think she will be one of the strong characters that makes young adult books so extremely great. It think her story will be pretty cool. I can't wait to read this book! :)

And what are you waiting on this week? :)

*slaps a high five* Another Shatter Me WoW! I think she'll be as epic as Tris from Divergent (ever read?), but somehow more endearing... I don't know. All I know is I get all drooly looking at this book :)

Thank you for visiting my blog ♥
