Waiting on Wednesday [10]

****"Waiting on Wednesday" is a weekly event hosted by Jill at the Breaking The Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.****

Article 5 by Kristen Simmons
Expected Publication Date: February 14th, 2012
Publisher: Tor Teen
Page Count: 368
New York, Los Angeles, and Washington, DC have been abandoned.

The Bill of Rights has been revoked, and replaced with the Moral Statutes.

There are no more police — instead, there are soldiers. There are no more fines for bad behavior — instead, there are arrests, trials, and maybe worse. People who get arrested don’t usually come back.

17-year-old Ember Miller is old enough to remember that things weren’t always this way. Living with her rebellious single mother, it’s hard to forget that people weren’t always arrested for reading the wrong books or staying out after dark. That life in the United States used to be different.

In the three years since the war ended, Ember has perfected the art of keeping a low profile. She knows how to get the things she needs, like food stamps and hand-me-down clothes, and how to pass the random home inspections by the Federal Bureau of Reformation. Her life is as close to peaceful as circumstances allow. That is, until her mother is arrested for noncompliance with Article 5 of the Moral Statutes. And what’s worse, one of the arresting officers is none other than Chase Jennings…the only boy Ember has ever loved.
Why I Can't Wait: Alright well if you know me, you know I'm a total dystopian junkie. I snatch up every dystopian novel I can find, and this is another one that I am DYING to read! It sounds so crazy, and sort of Hunger-Games-esque, I just can't WAIT to get it! I've seen a couple ARCs in people's IMMs and I'm so jealous, it's ridiculous. I'm sooo excited to read this one, I really don't wait to wait for Valentine's Day :P
