For Celebrate the small things I want to celebrate the life of Nelson Mandela. A great man who is going through a very rough time, may he recover. But if not, please Lord let his passing be as honourable as his life. *Bows head* We love you Mandela.

Summary on Goodreads: Cassidy Hart has had better days.
Her dad is missing. Her friends have been captured. And modern society is pretty much gone, thanks to an EMP that destroyed the technological infrastructure of the United States.
Surviving in the foothills of California is a challenge, but with the help of former Navy SEAL Chris Young, Cassidy's been able to stay alive.
Until now. Omega, the shadow army arisen from the chaos, won't stop until every single survivor is either under their control or dead. Taken by soldiers and forced into a labor camp, Cassidy must turn the tables on her captors. Escape means everything. Unfortunately, staying out of Omega's crosshairs is easier said than done.
You can run.
But you can't hide.
Cassidy's about to learn that the hard way.

State of Chaos is the sequel to the national bestseller State of Emergency, a YA/NA Romantic Adventure.
State of Chaos had my attention from the start and then it pulled at my heart strings. Then it turned on me and scared me half to death. Sequel to State of Emergency this novel is a great read for anyone who wants to see a terrifying world that isn't turned upside down by zombies. Cassidy and Chris are both on the run from Omega, an army that is bent on subjugating innocent civilians to their own ends. In this novel an EMP has left the United States without one of it's greatest assets. Technology. At the start we see Cassidy and Chris's 'friendship' as they trek by foot struggling to survive. When Cassidy gets captured by Omega things really turn inside out and trust me if you think you need something trying to bite you to feel terror, try a group of trained killers that already have members of your families locked up as criminals and you being on their hit list. I recommend that anyone who's a fan of dystopia, especially in a contemporary setting should read this.
Another plus for State of Chaos is the romance. Sick of girls pairing up with jerks, guys who just want to maul girls but pretend that's just how normal people want to have sex? (I'm normal and I'm not into that kind of sex, if my room's going to look like a war zone it's going to be because Omega jumped out of Summer's novel and chased me...simple). Then State of Chaos is for you, aside from all the running, you get to see a friendship and burgeoning romance become something more. I never read State of Emergency but State of Chaos pulls you right in and unlike some books don't leave you completely confused because you haven't read book one. Also Cassidy is a typical teenager and unlike survivor extraordinaire Katniss (love you girl but seriously) is someone most of us can relate you from our teen years and Chris being a survivalist and former Navy Seal helps keep them both safe and is a serious but also fun and decent guy (we need more decent guys in fiction).
Summer had given me an e-copy of her book in exchange for a review and I'm so glad I read it. Get a copy for yourself as soon as possible.
