Burning Kingdom by Lauren DeStefano - ADVISABLE

DeStefano, Lauren  Burning Kingdom (Internment Chronicles, #2), 312 pgs.  Simon and Schuster, 2015.  $17.99  Content: Language: G: (1 swear); Mature Content: PG-13 (implied sexual assault and underage drinking); Violence: PG.   

Morgan and her friends have always wondering what the world was like under Internment.  Now that they are here, fugitives from their own land, they find that the worlds aren’t as different as they had hoped.  On the ground there is war and they are looking for fuel to supply their war crafts.  Morgan and her friends are staying with a government family and Morgan wonders if she tells them there is fuel on Internment if the government will make it possible to return home.   

This is the second book in the series and at times the story seemed slow, but I loved the interactions between the characters.  Although it had been a year since I read the first book the author connected the two books effortlessly and I quickly remembered Morgan and her world.  That said, it would be confusing to read this as a stand-alone.  This is a fun series and relatively clean.
