The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins is a non – stop action filled books that leaves you breathless and with a lot to think about.
The Story: Years ago, there was a war. A very bad war. The North American Continent is now divided into districts. 12 living and a 13th that was bombed into oblivion. The closer you are to the capitol district , the better you life is. As part of their control, the Capitol has invented the Hunger Games. Every year, each district must send one boy and one girl ( age 12- 18) to the games. The game is survival and the last child alive is the winner.
The Hunger Games are broadcast on TV, every minute. Viewing is required by law. The games are like our current reality TV — Strategies, alliances, even costuming. But the stakes are much higher.
Fast reading and some what disturbing reading for teens and up. The first in a series.
