WINNING WILL MAKE YOU FAMOUS.
LOSING MEANS CERTAIN DEATH.
In a dark vision of the near future, a terrifying reality TV show is taking place. Twelve girls are forced to appear in a live event called the Hunger Games. There is only one rule: kill or be killed.
When sixteen-year-old Katniss Everdeen steps forward to take her sister's place in the games, she sees it as a death sentence. But Katniss has been close to death before. For her, survival is second nature.
Wow. Amazing. Absolutely amazing. I really can't put into words how brilliant this book is. It had characters you are willing on, a flawless plot and bucket loads of suspense. I recommend this to EVERYONE. I cannot wait to read Catching Fire but we don't even have a release date for the UK yet. I'm not sure that I'm going to be able to wait very long. But seriously, you HAVE to read this.
