Catching Fire By: Suzanne Collins

This year is the 75th Hunger Games, the Quarter Quell, and a special “twist” is being put on the Games. The twist for the Quell is that the tributes will be chosen from the past victors from the district. District 12 only has three victors: Katniss, Peeta, and Haymitch. Katniss and Peeta are chosen to be the ones to represent District 12. At the pre-games conferences, Peeta announces that Katniss is pregnant; this causes the whole country of Panem to go in madness and the Capitol to grow in fury. The next day… the Hunger Games begin! The arena is a clock and every hour, a different tragedy occurs: bloody rain, jaberjays, poisonous fog, and nine others. The Capitol also throws in some unexpected surprises to try and tear the “couple” apart. Will Katniss or Peeta be the won to win and claim the glory? Only one can survive.

—K.D. (age 14)
