Open Minds, by Susan Kaye Quinn

Humanity of the future is telepathic. But some people are born different. The least powerful are zeros, hated because their minds are closed off. The most powerful are jackers, feared for their abilities. Kira is a zero — an outcast, and completely alone. But if they knew what she was thinking, things would be so much worse.

Ender’s Game, by Orson Scott Card

$2.99 Kindle Sale ($7.99)

Some days, we spend a lot of time searching through book deals (okay, okay… shopping) before we find the perfect one for the blog. But today, we found Ender’s Game about three seconds into our browsing, and that was it. No need to look any further. The writing is superb, but direct. (More like Hemingway than like Rothfuss, although Card loved Name of the Wind as much as we did.) It’s subtle, and it’s smart–profound, but never preachy.

The plot moves at a steady clip, but the character development is brilliant. In fact, Ender himself might be our favorite thing about it.

Eve and LemonFresh are “bestests” in a high-tech, post-apocalyptic world. They live with Eve’s grandpa in a trash wasteland, surrounded by the discarded dregs of what was once civilization, getting by on grandpa’s mad tech skills and Eve’s bot fights in the War Dome. Until those bot fights almost get her killed. When a giant robot corners her, she throws out one terrified hand and screams.

And the bot falls down dead, its circuits fried from the inside.
