This novel for over 11 year olds is well written and absolutely gripping. It is set in a future where the US is divided into 12 different districts ruled over by the dictatorial Capitol.

As punishment for an earlier rebellion, two young people from each district must fight in the annual Hunger Games. They must kill or be killed until only one remains.

The book is told from the point of view of Katniss Everdeen of District 12. She has bravely taken her sister’s place in the games.

She needs to use all of her skills to stay alive and defy the Capitol.
