Waiting on Wednesday: Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi

>>Wednesday, July 27, 2011

Welcome back to another installment of Waiting on Wednesday,  hosted by Breaking the Spine. I know, I feel like I'm burned out on young adult dystopia books. But this one caught my attention by the reference to X-Men in the synopsis (I'm such a sucker for that).

Title: Shatter Me
Author: Tahereh Mafi
Publication Date: November 13th, 2011

From Goodreads:

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.

  1. Okay, I'll admit, the X-Men reference has me curious as well!

    I missed last week (I've been on vacation), so I went with a Double WOW this week.
