By Orson Scott Card
(380 pages, young adult science fiction, 1985)
It’s just a game. A game that means life or death for the planet. Our fate lies in the hands of children. They’re the only ones who can try the daring maneuvers necessary to defeat the aliens, the Buggers, without being hindered by an adult conscience.
But what will the war do to the children? Ender starts to see things. The game starts taking on a life of its own. He starts to question which side fired first. Ender begins to realize there’s a price for winning.
You may have liked the movie, but the book is even better.
