The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins

Have you ever played games before; well in the city of Panem, they play games a little differently. Winning the game means fame and fortune, and losing means certain death; at least that's how they play in The Hunger Games. The Hunger Games by Suzanne Colllins is a science fitction book about a teenage girl named Katniss Everdeen who takes place for Primrose, her little sister, when she is chosen  to compete in the Hunger Games. The Hunger Games is a death fight between twenty-four teens from twelve districts (one girl and one boy from  each district) and they are put into an arena to survive, fight and hunt for their lives. Now Katniss is in the fight not only for her life, but also for the rebellion that is rising and for love.
    I really enjoyed this book because the author would use an extreme amount of imagery it would make you feel as if you were there and you were Katniss. In addition to that the ending of the chapters gave you that "WOW" moment evrey once and a while. It would keep you turning the pages and "hungry for more." So read this book and find out if Katniss survives in the games in the three book series of The Hunger Games, Catching Fire, and Mockingjay. May the odds be ever in your favor.
