Waiting on Wednesday: Article 5 by Kristen Simmons

 I cannot wait to get my hands on a copy of this book, I've been re-reading what's available on Amazon's "Look-Inside" feature for this book :) Thank God I don't have to wait too much longer haha

Article 5 (Article 5, #1)

Article 5 by Kristen Simmons
Release Date: Jan 31st/12
Publisher: Tor Teen
Synopsis courtesy of Goodreads: New York, Los Angeles, and Washington, D.C., 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The Bill of Rights has been revoked, and replaced with the Moral Statutes.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 usually don't come back.

Seventeen-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 for her to forget that people weren’t always arrested for reading the wrong books or staying out after dark. It’s hard to forget that life in the United States used to be different.

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 military. 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 one of the arresting officers is none other than Chase Jennings…the only boy Ember has ever loved.
