Mrs. Burger: The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
"Katniss is a 16-year-old girl living with her mother and younger sister in the poorest district of Panem, the remains of what used be the United States. Long ago the districts waged war on the Capitol and were defeated. As part of the surrender terms, each district agreed to send one boy and one girl to appear in an annual televised event called, "The Hunger Games." The terrain, rules, and level of audience participation may change but one thing is constant: kill or be killed. When her sister is chosen by lottery, Katniss steps up to go in her place."
This griping first novel in the trilogy will keep you wanting to turn the page for more! Full of action, this tale of survival in a brutal and terrifying annual "game" will astound you. You will want to fight alongside Katniss as she decides who is friend and who is foe. I recommend this novel and the next two installments (Catching Fire and Mockingjay) to adults of all ages.
