I haven't read the book, but I can proofread what you've written so far for spelling and grammar issues. I can try to help you form some ideas as well.

Ok thanks! I just don't get what it means by identify the author's message about the human rights issue?

Oh, okay. Usually if a story contains a message, this message will be portrayed throughout several conflicts or points brought up in the story. For example, if your story contains a message concerning the human rights issue, the author has probably brought up some conflicts within the story that bring up issues like discrimination and gender inequalities. So, what they're asking you to do is to find these examples that the author has brought up, find quotes of these examples and explain what message these examples send to the readers. For example, one possible message could be, "We are all human, no matter the color of our skin." Does this help, or do you want me to explain further?

Ender Wiggin, the third in a family of child geniuses, is selected by international military forces to save the world from destruction. Before being chosen Ender wears a unique monitor that allows the heads of the military to see things as Ender does. Ender's brother Peter and his sister Valentine also wore this monitor, although neither was selected, nor did they have it for as long as Ender, and Peter will never forgive Ender for this. Peter hates Ender, and even when the monitor is taken out it does nothing to decrease Peter's anger. The same is true of Ender's schoolmates, and he is forced into brutally beating the leader of a gang of bullies in order to protect himself. Although Valentine tries to protect Ender from Peter, he is only saved from his brother when Colonel Graff of the International Fleet comes to take Ender away to Battle School. Ender leaves behind Valentine, who loves him, in order to help save the world from the buggers. Battle School is located on a ship far from earth. On the flight there Ender demonstrates his ability to brilliantly visualize gravitational effects, and Graff begins to isolate him from his fellow classmates. Ender lives with the new recruits, called Launchies. He makes a few friends among the recruits and ends his isolation, although his brilliance will never cease causing resentment. Inside the battleroom, Ender figures out how to maneuver in null gravity, along with another recruit named Alai. Ender and Alai become friends, and this helps Ender fit in with the rest of the group. Ender manages to get farther in one of the computer games, called the mind game, than anyone ever had before him, and although he does not know, the military commanders take notice. Ender is abruptly promoted to Salamander Army. There Ender is befriended by Petra Arkanian, the only girl in the army. The army commander, Bonzo Madrid, does not like Ender and does not want him around. Ender practices with Petra and begins to teach his launch group what he knows. Ender helps the army by disobeying Bonzo, who hates Ender, but fortunately Ender is traded to Rat Army. Ender is put in Dink Meeker's platoon. Dink is an excellent toon leader, and Ender does well in battles. He continues teaching his Launchies, even though this causes resentment among other soldiers. Ender gets into a fight and he hurts four older boys who attack him. It is clear to Ender that the teachers are leaving him to fend for himself.

This is a summary of the book so what points do you think I could use?

Hmm. This is odd because it takes place outside of Earth. However, it seems Ender is the only human there. The others discriminate against him by seeing the differences between them and not befriending him. Then when he did finally make friends, he was either traded or moved somewhere else. You could definitely use the trade as an example here and also how the teacher just leaves him to fend for himself.
