My Future Fix Pick! 
Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi
Publication Date: November 15, 2011
Publisher: HarperTeen
Pages: 352

(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.


The whole concept of this book for me is so interesting. I am IN LOVE with dystopian reads. Here is to hoping for a romance in the midst of the craziness! I would love to see how it would play out.
Side note: The cover is amazing; yet I am unsure how it fits into the book. Guess I will just have to fall head over heels with this read to understand. I am fully prepared to take this dilemma in full stride.

What are you waiting for??
