A War of Gifts

by Orson Scott Card
A War of Gifts - Orson Scott Card 5.00   2

A novella.

A standalone holiday story set during Ender's time at Battle School from the #1 New York Times bestselling author, Orson Scott Card

At Battle School, there is only one course of study: the strategy and tactics of war. Humanity is fighting an alien race, and we fight as one. Students are drawn from all nations, all races, all religions, taken from their families as children. There is no room for cultural differences, no room for religious observances, and there is certainly no room for Santa Claus.

But the young warriors disagree. When Dink Meeker leaves a Sinterklaas Day gift in another Dutch student's shoe, that quiet act of rebellion becomes the first shot in a war of wills that the staff of the Battle School never bargained for.
