Here's My #35th Teaser Tuesday From Article 5!

Article 5 (Article 5, #1)
Article 5
Kristen Simmons
(Article 5 #1)
Published: January 31st, 2012
Genres: YA, Dystopian

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The Bill of Rights has been revoked, and replaced with the Moral Statutes.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

Chapter 1: Page: 23
"Chase, please," I begged. "Please tell them this is a mistake. Tell them we're good people.

 You know us. You know me."

He shook me off as though some disgusting thing had touched him. That stung more than anything could in this moment. 

I stared at him in shock.

The defeat was devastating.

Chapter 13: Page: 285
My eyes darted to Chase. He looked like a wolf ready to attack. I felt the energy radiating off of him and knew to be prepared for anything.

Kristen SimmonsI was raised in Reno, Nevada—just below Lake Tahoe in the Sierra Nevada Mountains—with horses and dogs and Red Angus cattle. When I was little I had a colorful imagination (read: I was a cheerful liar), and loved to write stories. I rocked spandex shorts and slouch socks, put too many scrunchies in my side ponytail, and watched The Goonies approximately one kajillion times. For a brief time, I dedicated myself to a future in professional hockey after careful study of The Mighty Ducks.

  2. Excellent teaser. How are you liking the book?

    I finally decided to give it a go, but I'm doing the book I'm writing - Dead Girl Walking. I thought it'd be fun to share a snippet from the work-in-progress.



I love meeting new people through comments, and I always try to comment back! Thanks for stopping by! :)
