Waiting on Wednesday – Article 5

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine, and specifically spotlights upcoming novels we can't wait to read. This week’s choice is:
Title: Article 5 by Kristen Simmons
Publisher:
Tor Teen
Publish Date: Feb. 14, 2012
Genre: Dystopia
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 The Bill of Rights has been revoked, and replaced with the Moral Statutes.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.
I love dystopian books and get so excited to see more waiting to be released. Article 5 looks like it’s going to be really good. Not only does it have a great cover, the summary sounds awesome! Can’t wait to read it!
What books are you waiting on?

I almost forgot about this one! We've got awhile to go for it, but I'm going to add it to my list so I don't forget again. :)

I love the title of this one. So cool that it's got government involved since it's a dystopian book. Maybe it will seem more like it could possibly happen. I've noticed that a lot of dystopians seem a bit far-fetched.
