Hey it’s Jamari here, from ReadGeekx3 here with another book review! This review is for Article 5 by Kristen Simmons! Kristen Simmons is the first author I’ve ever met. I first met her at a writing convention for UCF, where she came in and answered questions we asked and gave me an autographed and free copy of Three (The third book in The Article 5 Series). Since then, I had a busy list of books to read and I didn’t have enough time to read the series yet until now!
The book is set in a world three days after the war where the government has completely eradicated the Bill of Rights and replaced them with a new set of laws called “The Moral Statues“. The book starts off with Seventeen year old Ember Miller coming home from school with her two best friends. Then all of a sudden, soldiers come to her house to arrest her mother for violating Article 5, and article which states:
“Children are considered valid citizens when conceived by a married man and wife. All other children are to be removed from the home and subjected to rehabilitative procedures.” – Moral Statues Document.
Ember is then taken to a reformatory by soldiers with a heartbroken feeling of being separated from her mother, and knowing that Chase Jennings (her best friend and crush that disappeared for a long time) was a soldier that helped them arrest her mother.
I enjoyed this book a lot! I thought it was well written and was full of action and adventure! I give this book ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ stars! I completely recommend this book to readers who love Dystopian fiction and who like The Divergent Series by Veronica Roth and The Legend Trilogy by Marie Lu.
I am currently about to reading the second book in the trilogy, Breaking Point, and I can’t wait to see how the series unfolds from there! That’s all for now! Check for more posts soon!
