The Hunger Games - Suzanne Collins

Student Reviewer: Emily

From Goodreads:
Could you survive on your own, in the wild, with everyone out to make sure you don't live to see the morning? 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.

 Student's Thoughts:
I really like this book.  Suzanne Collins is the author of the Hunger Games.  Katniss Everdeen’s sister was picked to go up for the Hunger Games.  For those of you who don’t know the Hunger Games is where two people from each district will get picked to go into the Hunger Games.  Twenty=four go into an arena and fight to the death.  So Katniss volunteers for her sister.  She and twenty-three others go into an arena and only one is supposed to come out.  I think this book was very good.  This year they held the games in a forest  and they fought for two weeks.  I think people will love this book.  I know I do.
