“I’ve been locked up 264 days.
I have nothing but a small notebook and a broken pen and the numbers in my head to keep me company. 1 window. 4 walls. 144 square feet of space. 26 letters in an alphabet I haven’t spoken n 264 days of isolation.
6,336 hours since I’ve touched another human being.”
This is how this amazing book opens. Narrated from the point of view of Juliette, who has been a prisoner of the Reestablishment for almost one year. In this future world, incurable diseases are killing people at an alarming rate; food is scarce for everyone and because of this is severely expensive; birds have lost the ability to fly; and the sky changes to violent, unnatural colors. With so much going on in this world, no one thought too much when Juliette was found with a dead body– she swore over and over that it was an accident; that all she did was touch him, and he died. No one cared what she said, and the Reestablishment government locked her away as a murderer. Now, however, the government is reconsidering her situation. Is Juliette telling the truth that her touch really is fatal? And if so, can they use her as a weapon? Or is she just insane? Is she a monster?
