This is one of the best books I've ever read. It was exciting - I couldn't put it down. Suzanne Collins has once again provided with an adventure that leaves the reader with much to think about in terms of how society works - and eagerly awaiting a sequel.

Booktalk Notes:

When Katniss and her sister attend the lottery to see who will represent district 12 in the Hunger Games, the unthinkable happens. Though her name is only in the lottery once, Katniss's little sister's name is drawn. Terrified for her little sister, Katniss volunteers to take her place. You see in the Hunger Games, the object is to be the last one alive. District 12, along with every district in the State of Panem, must send two representatives between the ages of 12-18 to the games. Peeta, the baker's son, will be the other member of the district 12 team. They are terrified. When they arrive, they find that they are way under-prepared and worry. When the adult mentor to whom they are assigned comes up with a unique strategy, they agree to try it - but will it be enough - or will they perish in the Hunger Games.
