The Hunger Games : )

Okay, guys. This book is probably one of the best books you will ever read. But that's just my opinion. This book was so full of suspense and drama and twists that I almost missed church because I got lost in the time. Suzanne Collins is a very creative writer who can write paragraphs you will want to memorize and repeat to your friends. Or maybe that's just me. Hat's off to Mrs. Collins!

Set in the future after a great revolution, The Hunger Games is a first- person suspense about a teenager named Katniss who lives in "the Seam". This means she is very poor and can barely afford to pay for food. If it weren't for her good hunting ability (which happens to be illegal) she and her mother and sister would have died. Plus, she has to put her name in a drawing. In the time of Katniss, when you turn eleven you have to put your name in a drawing to be a tribute in the Hunger Games. In the Hunger Games, there are two tributes in each district, and there are 12 districts. The tributes are transported to the Capitol (basically Washington D.C.) to be prepared to go to the arena. Where they are supposed to fight the other tributes for their lives. The last one left is the winner. Want to know what they get? Their lives. This is supposed to show that everyone is under the power of the Capitol. Well, at the ceremony of the drawing, which is called the reaping, Katniss's little sister's, Prim, name is drawn. But there can be volunteers. So Katniss volunteers just to keep her sister alive. In a tale of twists and turns and scenes that will keep you on the edge of your seat, Collins weaves a story of love and hate, life and death. Winning and losing.

Sorry I didn't get a picture of the book.

So am I. The next one, I think, will probably be the best.
