Awesomesauce: Shatter Me

In a great wave of new amazing YA releases this year, Shatter Me has been my favorite debut release of 2011.

This was a conflicting decision for me because there have been so many great reads this year! My bank statements will prove it, but Shatter Me takes the epic cake.

Tahereh Mafi takes us into a world where special abilities mean an untimely death and parents and neighbors alike will turn you into the government to get rid of you.

We meet Juliette as she is imprisoned for a year and conflicted about the danger she can pose with her touch and what her Reestablishment has a use for her. With the threat and the reality of death so close at hand for Juliette, the sudden introduction of Adam tosses her into a conflicting past and a dangerous future.

Tahereh Mafi has created a dangerous and unforgiving world filled with hate, love, and deceit while at the same time beautiful and precious.
With an amazing cast of characters and a fabulous supporting cast be prepared to be Shattered with this amazing new read from a debut author that will take your breath away.

I will totally be on the lookout for the Hardcover (it be shiny!) and the sequel!

Book Description:
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 asThe 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.
