Ender's Game is the story of an unlikely hero, a boy named Ender, living in the future, where Earth has been battling aliens called “Buggers.” I had to read it in my 10th grade English class, and it's the first book that I remember not being able to put down. It changed my whole conception of what reading could offer me.
This is a fun, quick read—it would be great to read with an older kid—and there are some good lessons about the power of teamwork and the value of persistence. In his pursuit to be the best, Ender sought to learn both from the best and to expose the weaknesses around him. I feel I did this when I created my own business.Buy the Book on Amazon
