WOW: Shatter Me

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.  It showcases books soon-to-be released that we are eagerly awaiting!
Title: Shatter Me
Author: Tahereh Mafi
Publication Date: 11/15/2011
Publisher: HarperCollins

Goodreads Summary:
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.

I so desperately want to get my hands on this novel!  I had pre-ordered it earlier, but due to some unexpected car expenses I had to cancel a bunch of my pre-orders.  Anyway, I'm hoping to get a hold of it sometime soon after it comes out because it just looks amazing!

What's your "Waiting on Wednesday"?
