Hunger Games

Hey everyone! Today's book is called the Hunger Games

By: Suzanne Collins

I have no idea where she got the inspiration for this book/series, but it is amazing. You definitely have to be ready though, because these children have to fight to the death. The main character, Katniss, was chosen in a reaping that they have once a year for the Hunger Games. The capital puts them on because they want to remind people that they are in control. Two children, from ages 12 to 18, from each district are chosen and Katniss's 12 year old sister, Prim, was chosen. Katniss couldn't let that happen so she volunteered to go in her place. Anyway Katniss promises her sister that she will come back, although she is sure to be lying. She goes off and get's beautified (some parts are a tad gross) and then a few days later she is in the arena being televised for the whole country to see. She makes some alliances and some enemies, but things are not going well for Katniss. She get's deaf in one ear, burned majorly, and is extremely dehydrated. Not to mention she has 23 others stalking her to kill her. I would highly recommend this book and there are two others, Catching Fire and Mocking Jay. As well as a movie coming out in March 2012. You'll have to wait for that one... ha ha.
Read tonight!
