This is a great book for older teens as it has an important message about getting involved and caring about others and the positive effect it can have own your life. Beware about reading to younger kids as it has some mild bad language and a heavy scene with rape. My son loved this book and didn't want it to end. It has a similar message as "The ultimate Gift" but more serious and appealing to older teens.
This is one of those books that you can't stop listening to. I never listen to audio books outside of my car but I took this to book to bed with me and listened to it on my Ipod because I just had to know what happened next. Though it is an easy listen, it was still very captivating.
Though a typical "high school girl teen" story, it was better than most. It had all the regular issues of wanting to be popular, maintaining girl friendships while having a first boyfriend, dealing with siblings and clueless parents. However, it also had the interesting twist of getting the lead role in the high production of Grease. And even though Grace had a boyfriend, they weren't having sex yet (and it wasn't a huge deal or a lot of pressure to.) Both my 13 and 17 year old girls liked this book.
I loved this book. One of the best and fastest reads in a long time. I still can't stop thinking about Ender and his life. Though it's a science fiction book, it's mostly about the life of a special kid and his mental and emotional strength.
