Do you have an connection to Orson Scott Card? Enders Game is one of my favorite books. I have more in common with Bean in that I am genetically modified, they placed me in a wealthy home though, I didn't escape and live on the street like he did. Did you go to something similar to battle school? if there is such a place? Bean is not based off of me as far as I know, just something I could relate to about the character. Orson Scott Card denies that there is any truth to his book, but there very well might be, it could be soft dis-closer or something for all i know.
