Andrew "Ender" Wiggin was not the only child in the Battle School; he was just the best of the best. In "Ender's Shadow," Card tells the story of another of those precocious generals, the one they called Bean--the one who became Ender's right hand, part of his team, in the final battle against the Buggers. Bean's past was a battle just to survive.
