Hunger Games

" Each Year in the ruins of North America, 24 teenagers are forced to enter the Hunger Games. Only one survives. Every moment is televised." -Scholastic on Hunger Games

I just finished reading Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins. WOW! I absolutely loved it. Great story, unique idea, thoroughly thought provoking and beautiful writing. I highly recommend it to all! It is the first in a trilogy but we have to wait for the second, Catching Fire, until September 1st (can't wait!!).

Franki (at A Year of Reading) talks about Hunger Games here

It is also the Cybils Young Adult winner. See complete list here

ok, can I borrow it?

Sounds like a great book. Would you recommend it for 5th grade, or is the subjet matter a little too intense?

Hi Gina.
It really depends on the student but I would say it is more appropriate for older students. It is pretty intense subject matter and has violent scenes. You should definitely read it and see what you think!
