Teaser Tuesday: Shatter Me

Teaser Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by MizB at Should Be Reading and slightly altered by Coffee, Books & Lipgloss

Basically a CBL TEASER TUESDAY works like this:

• Grab your current read
• Share 2 “teaser” sentences from a random page or a part you rather enjoyed and post it as a teaser.
• BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! Make sure that what you share
doesn’t give too much away; you don’t want to ruin the book for others!
• As an option, you can give a short snippet of what you think so far... or not. That's optional.
• Share the TITLE and AUTHOR too, so that other participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teaser.
For this week's Teaser Tuesday: *drum roll*

Shatter Me (Shatter Me, #1)
Title: Shatter Me (Shatter Me #1)
Author: Tahereh Mafi
Publication Date: November 15, 2011
Purchase: Amazon | B&N | TBD

Synopsis: No one knows why Juliette's touch is fatal, but The Reestablishment has plans for her. Plans to use her as a weapon. But Juliette has plans of her own. After a lifetime without freedom, she's finally discovering a strength to fight back for the very first time—and to find a future with the one boy she thought she'd lost forever.

"The world is flat. I know because I was tossed right off the edge and I've been trying to hold on for 17 years. I've been trying to climb back up for 17 years but it's nearly impossible to beat gravity when no one is willing to give you a hand."
Thoughts so far:

I've heard a lot of great stuff about Tahereh's debut novel and I was excited to start reading it. A few pages in and I can already feel my heart bleeding for what Juliette had to go through. This book is both unpredictable and predictable but still very compelling to read.

I can't wait to read more about the boys too.
