Review: Cuckoo's Egg (Age of Exploration #3)

User Review  - Goodreads

Notable for its alien pov & "human as other" effect, but also of note is that it shares the same year and concept as Ender's Game. Must have been an '80s trend to write simple stories about kids trained to become war criminals. Read full review
