For our first book of the New Year, we are venturing into the Young Adult/Sci-Fi category with the novel, The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
. The story is based in the future in the post-apocolyptic world in a country called Panem. Readers are introduced to 16 year-old Katniss Everdeen who volunteers to replace her sister in the annual Hunger Games, an annual televised event where children from each district are selected to fight to their death. It is a story of government control, loyalty and star-crossed lovers that will keep you turning the pages and wishing for more (so you better have the 2nd and 3rd books ready).
This book has won high praise from critics and authors including Stephen King and Stephanie Meyers. The Hunger Games is a New York Times bestseller and has won a smattering of literary awards including the "2008 Cybil Winner" for best fantasy and science fiction books and the School Library Journal's
"Best Book 2008."
