TEEN Book Club Member (and 2013 Library Champion) Victoria Cattelona reviewed October's book club selection "Ender's Game":
"Orson Scott Card’s science fiction masterpiece Ender’s Game is a tale of glory and honor bestowed upon the young Ender Wiggin, a condemned “Third”. As a child, he is selected for the prestigious Battle School where he cultivates his leadership and logistical skills. Ender, however, confronts self-doubt and uncertainty as he is isolated during his military preparation. He must eventually go to war, and the future of the human race depends on his success – if he can even survive the existing pressures of school with his resentful peers. With edge-of-the-seat action, Ender’s Game is a novel of overcoming fear and determining trust amidst deception. Card expertly weaves a story placed in a futuristic society where humans have already begun to colonize the distant planets of outer space. An alien race threatens human existence once more as tensions grow among the Earth’s nations; Card thus contrasts the worries of his time with the aspirations of a shared future in technological advancement. The book is an adventure at its core, and Card’s protagonist emerges a hero of noble proportions. With wit, pathos, and anticipation, Card sets the scene for a thriller that reveals more about humanity than it does about the possible life beyond our world."
TWEEN Book Club Member Devin Tazzetto reviewed October's book club choice:
"Not too bad but by far not the best book I have ever read, and the beginning was very long and depressing. But by the third chapter the plot started to come together.
Summary: Liza finds a letter with her name on it in her dead grandpa's basement. Inside are three maps and a letter that tells her to go on a quest her grandpa could not complete-based on finding Captain Kidd's Treasure. Will she complete the quest?"
Devin gave this book a "6" on a scale of 1 to 10.
