V is for Valentine Wiggin

Valentine is Ender's loving older sister in Orson Scott Card's ENDER'S GAME, one of my favorite books of all time. She protected Ender from their older brother Peter, manipulated the political landscape by writing under the pseudonym of Demosthenes, and developed the infamous Hierarchy of Foreignness. So basically, she's made of all the awesome.


"Ender, it really is true. We may be young, but we're not powerless. We play by their rules long enough, and it becomes our game."

Do you like Valentine? Tell me your favorite V characters.

I am ashamed to say I never read this book.

I'm drawing a blank on V characters right now. Don't know why. I think I need another cup of coffee this morning, I'm really dragging here...lol.

Can I tell you a V in real life I don't like? Victoria Beckham. For some reason, she annoys the living crap out of me. Probably because she gets to sleep with David Beckham every night...IDK. LOL

Good pick! I can't think of any V characters. I think, like jaybird, I need coffee.

I've been hearing of the "Enders" series for a long while now, but have never read any of them.

I need to fix that soon :)

Time for me to read Ender's Game again. It's been too long... I don't even remember this character! Sounds like she's amazing.

I'm rather ashamed to admit that she was my teenage crush... so empathetic, loving, young and beautiful.
