About Me

Hey! Gabriella here, and welcome to my lovely blog! :) So, I guess I'll start with the basics: teen who is in love with a bunch of randomness. I'd always wanted to blog, and well, here I am doing exactly that! Enjoy! :)

Article 5 by Kristen Simmons

So, I've been reading a lot lately, and this is just one of the books that I decided to read based off of the suggestions on Goodreads. Below is a summary: 

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The Bill of Rights has been revoked, and replaced with the Moral Statutes.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

Honestly, I wasn't really sure how I would feel about this book just because I got  "Divergent" vibe from it. But, it was seriously amazing! :) I loved it! Y'all should definitely read it (and yes, my Texan-ness is most definitely coming out right then :P)! The way it progresses is really interesting, and it was really cool to figure out which side various people were on and whether or not people were faking their loyalty.

There are two other books in the series: 

Both of these, as was with the first book, are both fantastic, and I most definitely loved them. I loved the way the plot developed, and although part of the ending in "Three" was sad, I still loved how it ended! :)
