“ I read the book The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins, and I found myself never wanting to put the book down. From the moment where we find ourselves following a young 16 year old girl named Katniss Everdeen and reading how she must take care of her sister, mother, and herself in a corrupted future dystopia , I knew that I was hooked. We learn that the future of the USA is not a pretty one and we have become divided into 12 districts that are extremely poor and are seemingly below poverty, a place where it is common to see people drop dead of starvation in the middle of the street. We follow Katniss as she is forced to participate in the Hunger Games, which is known to be an ultimate fight to the death. I found myself feeling everything that Katniss was experiencing and I thought that I was able to connect with Katniss because of how well written and detailed every scene was. I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys books about what the future world might look like, and also if you enjoy surprises and never knowing what might happen next. ”
