        What if the fate of the human race was in your hands? At just six years old, Ender must find an answer to this question as he is taken away from his family and off space – to Battle School – where he and other kids are trained to be soldiers to fight against the Buggers, an alien species threatening the human race.

 “Human beings are free except when humanity needs them. Maybe humanity needs you. To do something. Maybe humanity needs me – to find out what you’re good for. We might both do despicable things, Ender, but if humanity survives, then we were good tools.”

“Is that all? Just tools?”

“Individual human beings are all tools that the others use to help us all survive.”


Ender is humanity’s last chance to beat the Buggers once and for all, but through his journey to military excellence, he finds there are worse things out in the world than an alien species. The trouble is, how can you tell the good ones from the bad ones?
