Waiting On Wednesday: Breaking Point by Kristen Simmons

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly Meme hosted by Jill at Breaking The Spine. It is an opportunity for us to show books we can't wait to get our hands on.

This week, my pick is:

Breaking Point by Kristen Simmons
Article 5 #2
February 2013
Tor Teen

The second installment in Kristen Simmons's fast-paced, gripping YA dystopian series.

After faking their deaths to escape from prison, Ember Miller and Chase Jennings have only one goal: to lay low until the Federal Bureau of Reformation forgets they ever existed.

Near-celebrities now for the increasingly sensationalized tales of their struggles with the government, Ember and Chase are recognized and taken in by the Resistance—an underground organization working to systematically take down the government. At headquarters, all eyes are on the sniper, an anonymous assassin taking out FBR soldiers one by one. Rumors are flying about the sniper’s true identity, and Ember and Chase welcome the diversion….

Until the government posts its most-wanted list, and their number one suspect is Ember herself.

Orders are shoot to kill, and soldiers are cleared to fire on suspicion alone. Suddenly Ember can’t even step onto the street without fear of being recognized, and “laying low” is a joke. Even members of the Resistance are starting to look at her sideways.

With Chase urging her to run, Ember must decide: Go into hiding…or fight back?

I really enjoyed Article 5! I've been dying ever since to read the sequel. Only 5 months to wait...

  3. I haven't even read Article 5 yet! *runs away and hides* But nontheless, I can't wait for this one to come out. Maybe if I can hold off from reading the first one, I can wait until this one comes out and read both straight. Sounds like a plan, yeah? lol. Great WoW pick!
