Great science fiction book, even though I seldom read sci-fi. Andrew Ender Wiggem is the child hero, chosen to save the world from the next bugger attack, sure to decimate the Earth. He is rather brutally trained to be a commander, and his struggle to accept his role at command school and within his family, is an interesting read about self and solitude. Thanks for the suggestion, I quite enjoyed it.

Thanks for the book recommendation, and not just because it is a short, children's book. That made it easy to pick up, but the story of what makes bravery was touching as well. Lowry tells the story of a girl during the Nazi occupation of Denmark in the early 1940s, and choices made by the Danes to smuggle Jews out of their country. It was another terrific read from these lists of books.
