On Taris, we shave our heads. No. Thats wrong. On Taris, we have our heads shaved for us. You'd think life in a peaceful tropical island community would be idyllic. But the people of Taris follow strict rules to keep their isolated society functioning. To start with, it is most unusual for parents to have a child naturally; potential parents carefully select donors to ensure their offsprings qualities suit the needs of the community. Juno is different. Her questions and her reluctance to conform have made her an outsider. When her parents decide to have another child, Juno switches the donors of her new sibling while no-one is looking, with strange consequences. In the meantime, her other rebellions have been noticed: someone is trying to kill her. Is it simply because she is different, or are the elders of Taris keeping secrets?

Call Number: F CAR
ISBN: 0812550706
Publication Date: 1994
Winner of the Hugo and Nebula Awards In order to develop a secure defense against a hostile alien race's next attack, government agencies breed child geniuses and train them as soldiers. A brilliant young boy, Andrew "Ender" Wiggin lives with his kind but distant parents, his sadistic brother Peter, and the person he loves more than anyone else, his sister Valentine. Peter and Valentine were candidates for the soldier-training program but didn't make the cut-young Ender is the Wiggin drafted to the orbiting Battle Schoolfor rigorous military training. Ender's skills make him a leader in school and respected in the Battle Room, where children play at mock battles in zero gravity. Yet growing up in an artificial community of young soldiers Ender suffers greatly from isolation, rivalry from his peers, pressure from the adult teachers, and an unsettling fear of the alien invaders. His psychological battles include loneliness, fear that he is becoming like the cruel brother he remembers, and fanning the flames of devotion to his beloved sister. Is Ender the general Earth needs? But Ender is not the only result of the genetic experiments. The war with the Buggers has been raging for a hundred years, and the quest for the perfect general has been underway for almost as long. Ender's two older siblings are every bit as unusual as he is, but in very different ways. Between the three of them lie the abilities to remake a world. If, that is, the world survives. Ender's Game is the winner of the 1985 Nebula Award for Best Novel and the 1986 Hugo Award for Best Novel.
