Ender's Game - Orson Scott Card

1985 - Aliens have attacked Earth twice. A third attack would spell destruction. Humanity's only hope lies is a group of highly-trained military tacticians raised to lead the entire human fleet into battle. Ender Wiggin is the best of the best. His life consists of endless drills and manoeuvres to prepare him for the final confrontation. Is Ender ready? He's smart, he's top-off his class, he's trained to out-think the enemy, but he's also a 12 year old boy. Follow Ender as he coops with the hardships of military training and the pain of being pried away from his family at the age of 6.
