Product Description:

Earth is under attack by aliens and the world needs a mastermind to save them. The world comes together, trying to create an army of geniuses. Only one can save them. The question is, who will it be? At just six years old, Ender Wiggin has lasted longer in the gruesome training school than any of his genius siblings. Just when Ender thinks he’s met the end of the road, he gets upgraded in the system for more advanced training. The road is not easy, nor is it fair for children. In the end, it’s a sacrifice the world is willing to make for possible survival. Will Ender be able to save the world before the system breaks him – physically, emotionally, and mentally? Read about his suspenseful and strenuous journey in an endeavor to come out on top. This edition of the Hugo and Nebula winner also includes a note from the author, Orson Scott Card. 324 pgs, pb. ~ Brianna

Publisher Description:

In order to develop a secure defense against a hostile alien race's next attack, government agencies breed child geniuses and train them as soldiers. A brilliant young boy, Andrew "Ender" Wiggin lives with his kind but distant parents, his sadistic brother Peter, and the person he loves more than anyone else, his sister Valentine. Peter and Valentine were candidates for the soldier-training program but didn't make the cut--young Ender is the Wiggin drafted to the orbiting Battle School for rigorous military training.

Ender's skills make him a leader in school and respected in the Battle Room, where children play at mock battles in zero gravity. Yet growing up in an artificial community of young soldiers Ender suffers greatly from isolation, rivalry from his peers, pressure from the adult teachers, and an unsettling fear of the alien invaders. His psychological battles include loneliness, fear that he is becoming like the cruel brother he remembers, and fanning the flames of devotion to his beloved sister.

Is Ender the general Earth needs? But Ender is not the only result of the genetic experiments. The war with the Buggers has been raging for a hundred years, and the quest for the perfect general has been underway for almost as long. Ender's two older siblings are every bit as unusual as he is, but in very different ways. Between the three of them lie the abilities to remake a world. If, that is, the world survives.

Ender's Game is the winner of the 1985 Nebula Award for Best Novel and the 1986 Hugo Award for Best Novel.
