Waiting on Wednesday #41: Breaking Point by Kristen Simmons

Kristen Simmons

Tor Teen

Hardcover, 384 pages




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 loved the dystopian storyline in this series. The viewpoints from both main characters are always a good thing when I read. I really enjoyed Article 5 and look forward to reading Breaking Point.

    I loved Article 5 so much. It definitely made me a fan of Kristen Simmons. She is an amazing writer, and I can’t wait to see where she takes Breaking Point. No doubt about it, it will be a fun and fast, emotional ride!
