Ender's Game-A Book to Checkout

Looking for something new to read? How about something old? Not all the best teen fiction is brand-spankin' new. Ender's Game written in 1985 by Orson Scott Card is a CLASSIC in teen fiction.

"Set in Earth's future, the novel presents an imperiled humankind who have barely survived two conflicts with the Formics (an insectoid alien species normally called "Buggers" by most of the population). These aliens show an ant-like group behavior, and are very protective of their leader, much like Earth ants protecting their queen. In preparation for an anticipated third invasion, an international fleet maintains a school to find and train future fleet commanders. The world's most talented children, including the novel's protagonist, Ender Wiggin, are taken at a very young age to a training center known as the Battle School. There, teachers train them in the arts of war through increasingly difficult games including ones undertaken in zero gravity in the Battle Room where Ender's tactical genius is revealed."-summary from Wikipedia

At the time, Ender's Game won numerous awards including the Hugo Award, Nebula Award and Locus Award. Even cooler...Hollywood is FINALLY making this awesome book into a movie-due 2013. Checkout the Movie Blog here! 

Rising Star Asa Butterfield (Invention of Hugo Cabret) will be playing the lead role of Ender Wiggin. Check out Ender's Game today-sometimes the coolest stuff is NOT the newest stuff!
