Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
Rating: FIVE STARS
Summary: In a world gone wrong, the wealthy Capitol Rulers make all the rules to exploit the poor people of District 11. If Katniss Everdeen did not learn to hunt like her father her family would have starved. Unfortunately she was chosen in the yearly raffle to become a tribute. Along with 24 other children from 12 other districts, she was forced to apply all of her survival skills to "The Game" of staying alive. She knew that eventually she would have to kill the last survivor, but would she be able to do it? This is a scary and unbelievable look at the darker side of human nature. Children become pawns for adult entertainment for the purpose of terrorizing any one who might think of rebelling.
I loved reading this book and can't wait to read Mocking Jay. I have ordered six copies for the library.
