About the book
“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The Bill of Rights has been revoked, and replaced with the Moral Statutes.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.”
My Overall rating is 4.5
Only because some scene left me a little bit confused, that i hope the 2nd book will
But besides that this book was amazing. The story line was so different compared to
the usual dystopian books i have read. I enjoyed Emily’s story, reading what she had gone threw had me in tears. Emily was a bad ass, not so much in the beginning but reading the book you watch grow into a bad ass.
Emily’s Boyfriend ( Well ex sorta you have to read the book to know what i’m talking about )
Chase is a Old childhood friend who later on joined the MM Solders. Reading the book you know he is a mystery that you know he has secrets. But you knew reading Article 5 that his still cares.
you know that he goes threw a lot of depression stuff.
Article 5 is a non stop Action, you go threw a lot of shocking Twist sort of.
A lot of suspense, that had me flipping threw the pages like lighting speed i just had to finish this book i couldn’t put in down.
“I wondered what he’d done that had been so terrible that he wouldn’t accept even an ounce of kindness from another person. It seemed impossible just then that I could ever hate him more than he hated himself.”
The ending ending leaves you wanting more, once you finish the book you kinda have a clue what’s gonna happen in the 2nd book breaking point, but it still left you with a cliff hanger cause there is still a lot of story that needs to be told.This book has somewhat of a religion influence in this book. that kinda reminds me of a world run by a cult. But this book is a amazing dystopian story for YA reader’s and even the “little” older crowd.
