Hello everyone. Today, is Treasured Tales for Young Adults’ stop on The Disappearance of Ember Crow blog tour. I have a fantastic character guest post by Ember to share with you. Thank you to Walker Books (especially Jaclyn) for organising the blog tour, Ambelin Kwaymullina for sharing Ember with Treasured Tales and, of course, a big thank you to Ember.
Character Guest Post

Who are you?
I wonder if you know? I wonder if you’ll tell me that you are a Citizen or an Exempt or an Illegal, as if it your status under the Citizenship Accords captures the essence of who you are. And perhaps it does. Perhaps you are a Gull City Citizen, living your life by the rolling sea waves untroubled by the greater injustices of our society. Or perhaps you are an Illegal, locked in a detention centre with a collar around your neck to block your ability, or an Exempt, walking around uncollared but never quite free. But no one is ever only one thing. And for those of us who wish to end the Accords – we must be more.
The Tribe is more. Among us are Firestarters, Runners, Boomers, Leafers … and our abilities make us Illegals. But we are also rebels. Protectors. Family, to each other and the trees and animal of the Firstwood. And we are allies, to anyone who would overturn the Citizenship Accords, whether they are Citizen, Exempt or Illegal.
So you had better know who you are – and which side you are on.
Because we are going to change the world.
Thank you for the guest post, Ember.
