Shatter Me

13455782
Juliette was sent to the asylum for a power she never knew she had until now. For what though, a gift or a curse. Juliette has the power the power to kill people with her touch, as the world around her crumbles from famine and diseases she is one day sent a cell mate. After, 264 days of never touching someone they have sent a boy. With conflicting emotions she realizes she must help him, but how when they are stuck so the only thing she can do is teach him the daily routines of life in the asylum. 2 weeks later she finds herself leaving the asylum to meet with the Reestablishment.

Excerpt 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.
