Great Read! "The Hunger Games"...

Here's the latest book that I've been reading....The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins. It's the first of three books in this series, and WOW!, is it fantastic! The movie will open in theaters on March 23, 2012, and you can be sure that I'll be there to see it!

The story is based on the lives of people in a "future" North America, where after a great war the nation is divided into 12 districts. The capitol city of Panem maintains control of it's people through an annual televised survival competition between 24 young people, 1 boy and 1 girl, from each from the 12 districts. The heroine of this book, 16 year old Katniss, steps up to take the place of her 12 year old sister to spare her from the brutal competition when her name is drawn in the lottery . There can only be one winner and there is only one rule - stay alive. With lots of twists and turns in the story, your heart goes out to Katniss and the difficult tasks that she has to overcome. This book is a real page-turner and will keep in suspense until the very end!

Happy reading!
