The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins

With the much awaited hype surrounding the premier of the

 movie The Hunger Games why not find out what all the fuss

is about and read the book first!

Do you love a book full of rip-roaring action, a book that will have you on the edge of your seat and one that you can not put down. Throw in great characters and a bit of romance and you have The Hunger Games.

Winnning will make you famous. Losing means certain death. Let the Hunger Games begin!

In the ruins of a place once known as North America lies the nation of Panem, a shining Capitol surrounded by twelve outlying districts. The Capitol is harsh and cruel and keeps the districts in line by forcing them all to send one boy and one girl between the ages of twelve and eighteen to participate in the annual Hunger Games, a fight to the death on live TV.

Sixteen-year-old Katniss Everdeen, who lives alone with her mother and younger sister, regards it as a death sentence when she steps forward to take her sister’s place in the Games. But Katniss has been close to dead before—and survival, for her, is second nature. Without really meaning to, she becomes a contender. But if she is to win, she will have to start making choices that will weigh survival against humanity and life against love.
