The Hunger Games, by Suzanne Collins

In The Hunger Games, by Suzanne Collins, we see how a isolated society in the future can cause unrest between the people who live there. We see this unrest through a teenage girl named Katniss Everdeen. In this world their laws separate them and isolate them to only their own districts. These districts every year have an annual contest where two contestants, a boy and a girl from each district, fight against each other to the death. Every year the two contestants are drawn from a bowl, and in district 12 Katniss’s sister, who is young and weak, was drawn as a contestant. Katniss volunteered for her sister because she knew she was stronger and could do better. Katniss shows her strength and bravery in the games as well as her resistance to the society. In the three books we follow Katniss through her fight against the government and her fight with her contestants. In every book the excitement of what Katniss will do next keeps us reading.
