Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins

Publisher: Scholastic, 2009
Pages: 391
Source: I purchased

I have heard such great things from readers everywhere about this book. Katniss and Peeta return from the capitol victors for District 12. Katniss had no idea that when she held out the poisonous berries to Peeta and forced the game master to declare them victors that she had set into motion things that could not be undone. The hatred the President had for her was obvious from his visit to her house. He unlike the people of the other districts was not fooled into believing that she loved Peeta the way he loved her. This book kept me on the edge of my seat. The games were more brutal this time. By placing former winners in the arena again, the President himself set into motion a rebellion he could not begin to quell. I can't wait until the third book comes out. There were so many loose ends and cliff hangers that the third book is a must read. I had two other students who read it before me. I can't say no to a student who begs me. I will recommend it to any and all of my students.


  1. I just started this book. Based on your review, I can't wait to finish!

  2. Catching fire is awesome.. and what a cliffhanger. I am dying for book three
