The Hunger Games

I just finished "The Hunger Games" by Suzanne Collins. Very awesome book! I definitely recommend it to anyone that hasn't read it.

Basically, it takes place in a world divided into 12 "districts" and headed by the Capitol. Every year the Capitol takes one boy and one girl from each district and forces them into an arena to fight to the death in an event they call "The Hunger Games". When Katniss's twelve year old sister is selected to fight in the games, Katniss volunteers to go instead.

Hunger Games is written in present tense, which I do admit takes some getting used to, but is very well written and is the kind of book I HATED to put down. Even for a minute. The ending is a huge cliffhanger, but there is a sequel planned to come out on September 1st called Catching Fire according to: http://www.scholastic.com/thehungergames/about-the-book.htm . Which I can't wait for!
