If Julian Delphiki, known as "e;Bean,"e; has learned anything from living on the streets, it's how to survive. And not with fists he is too small for that but with brains.

Recruited for Battle School, a military installation designed to select and train children as future officers in the International Fleet, Bean meets Ender Wiggin: soon to become his best friend, and his greatest rival .
Readers can revisit the events of "e;Ender's Game "e;through the eyes of Bean in this companion or parallel novel.
