Recommendation: 'The Always War' by Margaret Peterson Haddix

The Always War by Margaret Peterson Haddix

For more than 70 years Tessa’s country has been at war. The whole society is geared to war – with the brightest students sent to military academies, and the others are left behind, to struggle in a grey and depressing world. Then Gideon, Tessa’s neighbour, is honoured as a war hero – yet he rejects his medal. Tessa becomes entangled in Gideon’s need to seek forgiveness from the enemy.
An intriguing story, which looks at truth and lies, the power of computers, and the resilience of the human spirit.

A classic read on similar lines is: Ender’s game by Orson Scott Card. Why not give it a try?
