Synopsis: (from www.bn.com)

In the ruins of a place once known as North America lies the nation of Panem, a shining Capitol surrounded by twelve outlying districts. The Capitol is harsh and cruel and keeps the districts in line by forcing them all to send one boy and one girl between the ages of twelve and eighteen to participate in the annual Hunger Games, a fight to the death on live TV. Sixteen-year-old Katniss Everdeen, who lives alone with her mother and younger sister, regards it as a death sentence when she is forced to represent her district in the Games. But Katniss has been close to dead before-and survival.

  1. I can’t wait to see what you think about this one. It’s one of my favorite books of 2009 so far.

  2. I agree with Amanda, I can’t wait to read your thoughts! 🙂

    Btw, what I never realized was the nation’s name, Panem… Panem et circenses, the name sure fits!
