Never judge a book by its cover. Mrs Lancaster Longview High School TX. She laid down Ender’s Game in front of us and told us it was about aliens and kids in space, but to not judge it based on its synopsis. This book (I’ll avoid a full description on how much the movie let me down) is what started my passion for reading. It’s opened worlds I never would have imagined, got me through tough times, increased my vocabulary, increased my knowledge on how humans interact with one another, let me escape when reality became too much. I can never thank her enough for introducing that “gateway” book into my life. In so many ways it helped me not only to become the young professional that I am, but just to be the woman that I am. And I have had the pleasure of sharing that “gateway” book with my husband and hope to someday share with our children.
