A classic for science fiction and mystery fans, Ender's Game is a six-year-old boy's adventure, which has been adapted into a movie by Gavin Hood and starring Asa Butterfield. The novel takes place in a future where humans have mastered interplanetary spaceflight. It centers around the conflict between an insect-like alien race called the Formics and a human race, the Humans, which have a unique ability to control the environment, have a chance of surviving another invasion, and the resulting war. In order to stop the Formics, the Humans create an International Fleet and train children to become commanders at Battle School.
The story begins as a game, which is intended to prepare the team for a battle against the Formics. It takes a lot of effort on the part of the human soldiers to win the game, and it stretches Ender's emotional and physical endurance to the limit.

It is similar to Mark Twain's Huckleberry Finn, but with the added twist of the aliens terraforming Earth. As a sci-fi novel for children, Ender's Game is a compelling read and a must-read for the entire family.
John Green's third novel, Paper Towns, is set in a fictional Orlando suburb. Green spent his childhood there and wanted to write a mystery story that explored the idealization of romantic interest. The novel became a New York Times bestseller and was adapted into a film in July 2015. While nearly all of Green's novels have been bestsellers, this one did not reach the same level of fervor as some of his previous works.
John Green's award-winning novel, Paper Towns, is an emotional roller-coaster ride that focuses on the unlikely friendship between two kids named Quentin and Margo. The book begins with the story of the two children's first meeting at age two, and traces their reactions to the shocking event that happened when they were nine. It is both poignant and funny, and is an incredibly entertaining read.
As the story progresses, the two main characters are thrust into different worlds, and both are unique in their own ways. In Paper Towns, the narrator is a ninja, and the other character, Margo Roth Spiegelman, is a nerdy, eccentric, and self-aware teen. The novel takes on many of the social conventions of the day, while still being completely fun to read.
