Every couple can only have 2 children because of population control. Ender is the third. He gets bullied by his brother and at school until he beats one of them up very badly. He is taken in by a school for people who fight against the aliens that are trying to take over earth. This is called battleschool. I am recommending this book because it is an adventure but is deeper than most adventure stories.
Football Genius The main character has to prove he’s a football genius by a series of challenges in his way. He can predict plays before they happen. It's a cool thing he can do for the NFL team the Atlanta Falcons. I recommend it because I love football and anyone else that likes football would like it. Land of Stories I recommend The Land of Stories because it is a great series for people who love fantasy. It is about the Bailey twins Alex and Connor who open up a portal which leads into a fairy tale book. They find themselves in the fairy tale world where they go on all sorts of adventures to help save the dying world. They meet many different creatures and animals who help them along the way. Sunny Side Up This story is about a girl (the main character) has to go live with her grandpa in Florida because her brother punched her in the face after she told her parents that he has been drinking beer and smoking cigarettes under the bridge. Her grandpa apparently stopped drinking a few years ago but the main character finds them everywhere in the house. Her grandpa lives in a place where there is only old people but finds a boy her age. Counting by 7's nting by 7s is a book about an adopted girl named Willow who was home-schooled all her life until she was 11. Her new teacher gives everyone a test. Willow completes the test and gets 100%. No one in the school has ever gotten 100%, so the teacher and principal suspects she cheated. So she goes to a counselor name Dell Duke. That’s when she met Mya and her brother Quang-Ha.
