Katniss’ friend Gale doesn’t want her to go through with it, nor does everybody else in the whole of the district! But she must, and she will go to every length to get back home…But what about Peeta? After pretending to love him for publicity and sponsorship, she can’t leave him behind; but only one person can win…
This is a fast paced, thrilling adventure by bestselling write Suzanne Collins. She is a brilliant author and is one of my all time favourite authors! This fantastic book is soon to be an awesome movie, (March 23, 2012) and I am sure it will turn out just as great as the book! It is also the first in a trilogy, (already out) the next book is CATCHING FIRE, and the third MOCKINGJAY. They are a must read for all dystopian-fiction lovers of all ages!
