A War of Gifts: An Ender Story

Conservative, religious Zeck Morgan never asked to be recruited for Battle School, but religion isn't grounds for exemption. Now Zeck is training for war in the middle of what should be the holiday season. When two Dutch boys share a Sinterklaas gift, Battle School is rocked by the discovery of a loophole: religion isn't allowed, but Santa Claus and gifts are not religious. Should Zeck allow the other boys their fun, or is this gift exchange a mockery of faith that must be stopped? Orson Scott Card's War of Gifts is a fantastic blend of sci-fi and spirited (and spiritual) holiday fun. While set in the Ender universe, and featuring Ender as well, readers unfamiliar with the original book will still delight in this mischievous holiday tale. --Kyla Paterno, former children's and YA book buyer
