SHATTER ME by Tahereh Mafi (Harper, November 15, 2011)
SHATTER ME is a super-fast read with tons of action and adventure and a healthy dose of dystopia and sci-fi. It's like an X-Men meets WITHER, and totally kept me up late reading well into the night.
The author has a lyrical style of writing that sets the book apart from other dystopias on the market. Highly recommended for those who devour dystopia and also want a nice sampling of super powers to go along with it!

"You can't touch me," I whisper.
I'm lying, is what I don't tell him.
He can touch me, is what I'll never tell him.
But things happen when people touch me.
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.
