Ender's Game (Ender, Book 1)

Ender's Game - Orson Scott Card A clever tale, and the beginning of a longer series, but it works fine as a stand-alone work. This follows young Ender from his miserable childhood home life, on to military boarding school, and then through a seemingly unlikely series of events (later revealed to be not-so-unlikely) on to a meteoric and stunningly successful military career. Interestingly, the character exhibits such admirable leadership traits that this book is officially part of the U.S. Navy's recommended reading list for Junior Enlisted. (yes, such a thing exists!)
