I'm sure many of you have heard of Tahereh Mafi's upcoming debut SHATTER ME due to be released November 15, 2011.
(My birthday! Yay!)
If you haven't:

"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."

Sounds sooo good!

Well lucky for us she has ARCs!
And she is holding a contest with two, 2!, chances to win.
It's going to be chosen by random.org and the more we spread the news the more entries we get.
Hence the blog.
I really, really want this book!
So the ARCs she has now don't have cover art
Tahereh plans on doing another contest when the ARCs with cover art come in!

But seriously, we all know it's what is on the inside that counts.
