Gregor and the Marks of Secret by Suzanne Collins
" For any Hunger Games fan, the earlier Suzanne Collins series is a worthwhile read. While it doesn't have the depth of THG, and is written for a younger age group (11-12 year olds), it carries many of the same themes as THG: the conflict between di... " Read more of this review »

Gregor and the Prophecy of Bane by Suzanne Collins

This series is so incredibly excellent. If you admired what Suzanne Collins did in the Hunger Games trilogy, you owe yourself the opportunity to enter Gregor's world. It might be middle reader, but the feelings are just as complex and nuanced.

This book is a love letter to all the book people out there. It is sweet, and, at many points, laugh-out-loud funny. I recognized myself; I recognized many of my friends. I have had these conversations. It may not be deep, but it did strike a chord.

Christopher Moore
“If you have come to these pages for laughter, may you find it.
If you are here to be offended, may your ire rise and your blood boil.
If you seek an adventure, may this song sing you away to blissful escape.
If you need to test or confirm your beliefs, may you reach comfortable conclusions.
All books reveal perfection, by what they are or what they are not.
May you find that which you seek, in these pages or outside them.
May you find perfection, and know it by name.”
