I am so excited to be a part of the Dove Exiled tour. This is such a great adventure with non-stop action. You really get to watch Phaet grow into a young woman who fights for a cause she believes in. This book is great for all age groups. Adults will enjoy it as well as kids. Karen Bao has such an amazing voice in her writing. This is a must read and I can not wait to see what will happen next in  book 3.

The thrilling follow-up to the groundbreaking debut Dove Arising.

Phaet Theta fled the Moon and has been hiding on Earth with her friend Wes and his family. But Phaet’s past catches up with her when the Lunar Bases attack the community and reveal that Phaet is a fugitive. She’s torn between staying on Earth with Wes—whom she’s just discovered her feelings for—and stowing away on a Moon-bound ship to rescue her siblings from the wrath of the government who killed their mother. But when Phaet makes the agonizing decision to return to the Moon, she finds the rebel movement there has turned her into their “Girl Sage,” a symbol of their struggle. She’s the biggest celebrity on the Moon: half the people worship her, and the other half want her dead.

Your Trip to the Lunar Bases: Top Ten Items to Bring

Nothing magnetic.
First off, don’t bring anything made of iron or other magnetic materials. Because the Lunar Bases are gravitized by magnets, all your stuff will fly up and stick to the ceiling.

A good pair of outdoor boots
Eri, a Militia trainee, learns this the hard way. Be prepared to climb, jump, and run for your life.

Science textbooks (in e-book form, of course)
In a society founded by scientists, people swear on Darwin’s On the Origin of Species instead of the Bible. Here, forgetting Newton’s Laws or the structure of DNA will peg you as an outsider. Brush up on the basics before your visit.

A handscreen
If you’re a Lunar, you’ll need one to receive government communications (aka orders). If you’re not a Lunar, you’ll need one to blend in…or else. Installation is tricky: it’s directly wired into the back of your hand. Can’t help you much there.

Hand sanitizer
Lunars are SUPER-clean and disinfect EVERYTHING, so this is more for their benefit than yours.

Freeze-dried food
It’s hard to afford Lunar grub unless you work in one of the scientific Departments. So bring ALL THE FOODS.

If you need that meat fix…
Most people on the Moon are vegetarians (like me), which usually surprises visitors. With the limited space on the Bases, it’s impossible to raise animals, and only the wealthy can afford lab-grown meat. So if you must have it, then bring jerky or something.

Pepper spray/pocketknife
I’m not advocating violence, but it’s critical to have self-defense tools on hand for when other Militia trainees get nasty. Phaet nearly dies because two bullies ambush her in a corridor with the intention of taking her out so they can rank higher.

First Aid Kit
Militia is tough, and doctors are expensive (unless your family has connections with the Committee). If you don’t know how to sew up cuts, make friends with someone who does.

A memento from home
The Lunar Bases’ endless propaganda will try to make you believe in their authoritarian rule and hate Earth. Bring a shell necklace or Beanie Baby to remind yourself of who you are and what matters to you. (This is me with the pink elephant I’d bring.)
