The Hunger Games
by Suzanne Collins

Summary: In this futuristic dystopian world, two teens are chosen each year to represent their district in The Hunger Games. The Games will allow only one victor as the contenders must survive and fight to the death. Sixteen-year-old Katniss immediately volunteers to take the place of her little sister when Prim's name is drawn as this year's District 12 female representative. Along with Peeta, the baker's son, Kat is thrown into a harsh world or survival where only the toughest, most clever contestant will survive.
Thoughts: This is a captivating, "can't-put-it-down" novel by the author of the popular Gregor the Overlander series. It is haunting and stays with the reader long after the last page is turned. Dystopian stories are not my first love, but this well-written book pulled me in immediately and left me wanting more. Thankfully, there is a sequel on the way!
