52 books :: Book 8 :: Catching Fire

Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins is the second book in the Hunger Games trilogy. This is a young adult science fiction novel. I finished that one fast...I honestly can't say which one I liked the best, the first book or this second one! Great story, great pace, same awesome characters all made a very enjoyable read. My older daughter is also reading this series, she is just starting this title. It's been fun talking about the story!

"Against all odds, Katniss Everdeen has won the annual Hunger Games with fellow district tribute Peeta Mellark. But it was a victory won by defiance of the Capitol and their harsh rules. Katniss and Peeta should be happy. After all, they have just won for themselves and their families a life of safety and plenty. But there are rumors of rebellion among the subjects, and Katniss and Peeta, to their horror, are the faces of that rebellion. The Capitol is angry. The Capitol wants revenge. Suzanne Collins continues the amazing story of Katniss Everdeen in Catching Fire, the second novel of the phenomenal Hunger Games trilogy." from the scholastic website.
