The Hunger Games | Suzanne Collins

Paperback: $8.48

The Hunger Games, written by Suzanne Collins, is an adventure-filled, young adult novel that you won’t be able to put down once you pick up.

The novel is based in the future in Panem, which used to be a North American country. The protagonist, Katniss Everdeen, volunteers in place of her sister, Prim, to take part in the annual Hunger Games, a “game” in which young adults between the ages of twelve and eighteen are subject to a fight to the death in a large, dangerous arena on live TV. Everdeen’s life will change forever once she takes the place of her younger sister as the girl tribute form District 12, one of the twelve districts under the rule of the Capitol. People in the Capitol put them in the Games in the first place as a reminder that the Capitol is all-ruling over the districts after they had rebelled several years before. This New York Times Bestseller will keep you guessing until the very end. Even at the end, it leads right into the second book of the series called Catching Fire. The Hunger Games is a fantastic book that I highly recommend.
