Waiting on Wednesday: Article 5

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we cannot wait to get our hands on.

This week my Waiting on Wednesday is


Title: Article 5
Author: Kristen Simmons
Expected Publication: February 14, 2012








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The Bill of Rights has been revoked, and replaced with the Moral Statutes.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.(copied from Goodreads)

I have had my eye on this one for a few weeks, and every time I read the description I want to read it more!
It sounds so good!
What are you waiting for the Wednesday?

I have seen this book mentioned a lot lately. I have been on the fence about adding it to my TBR list, but the more I see it the more interested I get. Great pick here's mine http://booklovingme.blogspot.com/2011/11/waiting-on-wednesday-6-www-wednesday-2.html

I don't haven't any new book that caught my eye at the moment. This one sounds interesting especially having a character named Ember. :D It's like she will be a precursor of some sweeping yet subtle underground movement but I could be wrong. :D

This was my WoW a few weeks ago!
