Ender's Shadow by Orson Scott Card

Ender’s Shadow, by Orson Scott Card, is about a very small child named Bean who started starving on the streets and finished becoming a commander of a fleet of spacecraft.

This book is from a third person limited view of Bean. Bean has been underestimated by everyone for his small size until he shows just how clever he is. The main point that the book builds  up to in the story is the war with an alien race that the humans call the “Buggers”, who threatened the human race’s existence during the first war. The second main character is a child named Ender. Ender takes control of an army in Battle School. Battle School is a place that trains children how to fight in space so they can defend Earth when the Buggers attack. Ender uses this army he has to get high scores on the school’s ranking system so that he can soon take command of an actual fleet in space. Ender is then the one child the School’s staff leans toward to defeat the Buggers and eliminate them from existence.

This book is wonderful to the general public who enjoys a good sci-fi story while wondering what bean will do next in his goal to become a leader.
