A Reading from Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi | #WednesdayYA

It's time for more #WednesdayYA! For those of you who've been following along, our first book pick was SHATTER ME by Tahereh Mafi. We'll get to our final thoughts next week, but for now, here's a reading of the entire first chapter, in which I had to get a little creative - but I had a lot of fun with this one! Hope you guys do, too. =)

about the book:
SHATTER ME by Tahereh Mafi
Get It | Add It
Dystopia/Sci-fi, 338 pages
Published November 15th 2011 by Harper
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.
