Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi

Shatter Me
by Tahereh Mafi [YA Mafi] 

Juliette has been in a maximum security prison for 264 days. Her whole life she has been called a monster, because when she touches another person’s skin, they experience incredible pain. If the contact is held for long enough, that person dies, which is why Juliette is in prison.

In a world that is falling apart, it is easier for The Reestablishment to lock Juliette up than try to figure out why her touch is fatal. But now, they’ve decided that maybe her touch is not a bad thing. One of the commanders of the army even sees it as a useful weapon. Juliette must decide if this is the only option available for her.
