YA Sci Fi with a whiney main character

I enjoy YA fiction and sci fi so thought this was right up my alley. Very slow start, failed to gain my attention.
Some obvious nods to the The Ender saga (Formics, anyone?), but just doesn’t make the cut.
The most interesting part was the last few chapters, and this is fairly short so stick it out if you’re curious.
