For the month of May, I read a book in one day: Allies, by S. J. Kincaid. It was a prequel book to a series I had read the first book of. The Earth is in the middle of World War III, which is being fought in space, via remotely controlled ships. The main character in this book is extremely smart, but terrible at interacting with humans. She is accepted into the Intrasolar Forces, an elite military training program. Even though she is way beyond anyone else intellectually, she must learn to be around and communicate with other people before she can advance.
If you liked Ender’s Game this series- called Insignia- is perfect for you!
