The Hunger Games(book 1) by Suzanne Collins



From the Cover:
Katniss is a 16-year-old girl living with her mother and younger sister in the poorest district of Panem, the remains of what used be the United States. Long ago the districts waged war on the Capitol and were defeated. As part of the surrender terms, each district agreed to send one boy and one girl to appear in an annual televised event called, "The Hunger Games." The terrain, rules, and level of audience participation may change but one thing is constant: kill or be killed. When her sister is chosen by lottery, Katniss steps up to go in her place.

Tifferz Take:
First of all this book is not something I would normally pick up. My good friend told me I had to read it. She was right. I was sucked into the world of Katniss. I stayed up all night reading this one. It was worth every minute. Their is violence in this book, but not so over the top as to be distracting. I will say that at the end of this book leaves you hanging. I highly recommend this book! My friend let me barrow this but am going to be buying it. Yup it was that good.
