The Hunger Games *****
By Suzanne Collins
ROMANTIC AFFAIRS ***
MYTHICAL/SUPERNATURAL CREATURES ***
I am in love with this book! It was an action packed with survival, romance, peril, and twists at every turn...I couldn't put it down! *Note: There is a lot of death and gets a little descriptive with the wounds and gore, but it won't be too bad for those 13 +.
Katniss Everdeen lives in a time of Darkness. District 12, her hometown, has been struck by a slowly consuming famine. Once a year, the cruel Capitol forces each district to offer two teenagers between the age 12-18 to participate in The Hunger Games, a barbaric 'game show' where they trap the tributes in a large arena and they must fight to the death. Whoever survives gets ever-lasting glory and wealth. When Katniss volunteers herself in her sisters place, her life is changed forever as she tries to survive the horrid Hunger Games.
