Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins is an action-packed sequel to one of my favorite books, The Hunger Games. In it, the main character and also the narrator (the Hunger Games series is written in first person), Katniss, has just finished the annual Hunger Games with her boyfriend Peeta. As a result of participating in the Hunger Games, they have to tour their country, Panem. Since Katniss and Peeta were in the last Hunger Games, they’re going to be mentors for the next two tributes from their district, District 12. While on the tour, Katniss’ prep team is talking about this year’s uncommon Quarter Quell Games. Apparently, it’s very special to be a mentor in these Games, and it’s even more special for Katniss and Peeta because it’s their first year of mentoring. Katniss and Peeta end up having a key role in these exceptional games… but not in the way they imagined.
The Hunger Games Trilogy is a love story mixed into an action/adventure series of overthrowing the evil Capitol. I recommend it to anyone who likes a good romance book, but also likes to read about adventure. I absolutely adored these books and I hope you do too.

This book is not going to be found in an elementary school library. Ask your parents first if you want to read it. The series is good, but does contain violence, so some parents may object.
