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The Bill of Rights has been revoked, and replaced with the Moral Statutes.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

Why I’m Excited:
This romance sounds sooo good and I love dystopian novels!! 2012 seems to be a year for fabulous debuts!

    I'm already looking forward to some of the 2012 debuts too. I don't usually like dystopians but I've got this one on my wishlist because I like its premise and the sound of the romance.

  15. Small Review says:

    I agree 2012 has some amazing looking books. I'm curious to find out what exactly her mother did to violate Article 5 (and what is article 5).

  16. Ooh, I hadn't heard of this before, but it sounds awesome! I'm really intrigued by the synopsis – great pick! :)

  17. GAH! Arrested for reading the wrong books?? Noooo! I don't want to live in this a world like that, but I'd like to *read* about it.
