Katniss Everdeen, a teenage girl from District 12 in the dystopian future of North America called Panem, is thrown into the annual Hunger Games: a fight to the death among 24 children from the Districts. Katniss soon becomes the rallying symbol of a growing nation-wide uprising, and must choose carefully how to play the ever-complicating game of the war in order to survive.
These books are everything you want a good book to be--original, thought provoking, full of engaging and memorable characters and hard to put down. If all YA fiction was this good I would never read adult fiction again! You must read them now, but be warned don't start the first book unless you have bought the other two books or you will be making a late night trip to the Wal-mart book aisle!
****For those keeping track I have read 18 books so far in 2012---I post occasional reviews of those I find to be the most engaging. I LOVE books so if you ever want a book recommendation let me know!****
