Have you ever finished reading a book or series and found you were sad there was no more to read? That you miss the characters? That's me... I miss reading The Hunger Games. I'm depressed.
A friend that works at Trouble's school recommended I read the book because she loved it. She also warned me that it was violent, scary, brutal and twisted but oh-so-good.
The Hunger Games is a young-adult novel by Suzanne Collins. It's a post-apocalyptic tale after the destruction of North America in the unknown future. The protagonist of the series is Katness who lives in one of 12 districts controlled by 'The Capitol'. Katness has assumed the role of provider for her family after her father's death. She constantly struggles with the weight of her overwhelming responsibility. The Capitol televises the annual Hunger Games where two children from each district are forced to fight to the death. That's right... to the death! Imagine Survivor meets Lord of the Flies with a twist of science fiction.
The trilogy consists of The Hunger Games, Catching Fire, and Mockingjay. So go to your local library, book store or borrow it from your BFF and get to reading!
Happy Hunger Games and may the odds be ever in your favor.
