DOVE ARISING, by Karen Bao


The story: Phaet’s family is already living on the edge when her mother gets sick…sick enough that her medical care will send the family to the homeless Shelter. Phaet desperately grabs her only chance to help: she signs up for the Lunar Militia, knowing she’ll have to place near the top to get a salary that can pay to keep her family afloat. She never expected the cutthroat competition, the possibility that she might come out on top, the chance to fall in love–or the realization that no matter how well she does, the cards might be stacked against her anyway.


Mrs. Friend’s opinion: If you’re a fan of Ender’s Game or science fiction in general, take a look at this one!
