Set in the future, mankind is at war with insect-like aliens called, rather unfortunately, the buggers, who want to wipe out the humans. A sensitive young boy called Ender Wiggin is recruited to Battle School, a place where children are trained to become future commanders and Ender looks like being the best. Ender suffers: he is bullied by his manipulative older brother Peter; he is separated from his family and loved ones; he is manipulated and isolated by his teachers; he is even set up so that other boys at the Battle School will hate him. Ender comes to realise that there will never be anyone to help him in any situation he finds himself in; that he can only rely on himself.
