Book Review: Article 5

Article 5 by Kristen Simmons
This is a bad knock-off of ‘The Handmaid’s Tale’ as a future dystopian post war America enforces moral order. Ember is sent off to reform school when her ‘free spirit’ (aka the town bike) mother is arrested. One of the arresting officers is Chase Jennings, Ember’s one true love. Cue bilge. Chase knows what is going on but won’t tell Ember for her own good and Ember is dim. This is not dystopian, this is a bad romance and guess what? The ending leaves things wide open for a sequel. No, just no.
