The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins is a story of determination and loyalty. The games are all about winning, and the only way to win is to survive. Each year, two teenagers are chosen from each of the twelve districts to battle it out in an arena where they struggle to survive. Players not only have to seek out water and food, but watch their backs for an attack from a fellow player.
Katniss Everdeen is terrified when her younger sister, Prim, is chosen to participate in The Games, but recovers quickly enough to volunteer to take Prim’s place. When The Games begin, more problems arise as Katniss begins to question her own intentions. As she starts to care more for Peeta, she realizes that there is only one winner of The Games. Can Katniss survive while staying true to herself?
The Hunger Games is full of action, and even some romance. My mom’s friend actually was the one who recommended that I read it, which just goes to show that no matter how old you are, The Hunger Games will leave you begging for more.
