BLOG TOUR: Breaking Point by Kristen Simmons

Title: Breaking Point
Author: Kristen Simmons
Series: Article 5 #2
Publisher: Tor Teen
Release Date: February 2, 2013

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?


“This or That”
with Kristen Simmons

Rain or Snow – Rain every month but December, then I want a white Christmas!

Red or White Wine – Neither! I’m actually allergic to alcohol, so both would probably kill me. 

Heels or Flats – Not crazy high heels, but heels. My husband’s tall and I’m…not. So I like wearing a little bit of a heel.

Skirt or Pants – Pants. I’m not much of a lady.

Angels or Demons – Angels. There seems to be a lot of evidence out there in the YA world that demons, however sexy, smell like brimstone. 

Good or Bad boy – Take a bad boy out. Bring a good boy home.  

Unicorn or Dragon – Dragon, preferably the Eragon/fire-breathing/BFF’s 4eva type.

Coffee or Tea – Tea! Coffee = BLECH! 

Coke or Pepsi – Root beer 

Cabin in the woods or Condo on the Beach – Both please. A cabin for snowy time snuggling and a beach condo for midnight skinny dipping.

Kisses or Hugs – Hershey’s Hugs are soooo good. White chocolate AND milk chocolate? My mouth has found supreme happiness.

Cash or Card – Cash. It’s much better when I know exactly how much I can spend.  

Print or Ebook – Print. Although I like to read manuscripts on a Kindle. It’s so much easier than reading on my laptop. 

Voice or Text – Oh man, I love talk texting. It’s the best! Especially when it messes up and writes something completely random or inappropriate and I send it without looking. Er, I mean, not those times. 

Cake or Pie – Both please. With whip cream. Specifically red velvet cake with cream cheese frosting, followed by pumpkin pie. Followed by Funfetti cake. Followed by apple pie with caramel topping. I may or may not have a sweet tooth.  

Gold or Silver – Silver. Definitely.

Romance or Passion – I believe you can have both in the right relationship.

Night or Day – Day. I’m a morning glory not a night owl.
