1985 Nebula and 1986 Hugo Award winning book about a dystopian society that trains child geniuses as defense against a hostile alien race. An outstanding story with a great unexpected twist at the end. I guess you'll just have to read it to find out what happens!
I'm not generally a reader of True Crime, but my wife insisted I read this book. I am glad I did. By tying the history of Chicago in with the story, the author brought life to the people and events described and made it a great read! Highly Recommended!
