Against all odds, Katniss Everdeen has won the annual Hunger Games with fellow district tribute Peeta Mellark. But it was a victory won by defiance of the Capitol and their harsh rules. Katniss and Peeta should be happy. After all, they have just won for themselves and their families a life of safety and plenty. But there are rumors of rebellion among the subjects, and Katniss and Peeta, to their horror, are the faces of that rebellion. The Capitol is angry. The Capitol wants revenge.

      • content: happymoon - It's been tough for Katniss. She is a victor of the Hunger Games, the deadly event that is held every year to maintain the peace among Panem. She is supposedly in love with Peeta Mellark, the boy with the bread. Her life is constantly changing, peacekeepers showing up at her door, her family in a even higher rate of dying, and even her own hunting partner changing up their relationship completely. Nothing seems to go her way, and the Capitol makes it even harder. She's going back to the games. Against all odds, the annual Quarter Quell states that the 75th annual Hunger Games is the game to return 24 victors back into the games. And obviously, being the only girl from District Twelve, Katniss is going back. While battling human eating monkeys, other tributes and her hatred for President Snow, Katniss must realize her importance to the games. Those berries that were held out in the last games were the start of a rebellion. She isn't just the girl on fire, she's the face of the rebellion. And the Capitol doesn't want that happening. Thrilling, gruesome and excitement that's unleashed with the flip of a page, Catching Fire exceeds the power of The Hunger Games in every way. It's the start of something much more, and it will get that fire burning up inside of you. You are now truly. . . CATCHING FIRE!

        Starred review from June 22, 2009
        Suzanne Collins follows her bestselling dystopian novel, The Hunger Games
        , with a sequel that’s certain to cement fans’ commitment to the trilogy.
        Catching Fire

        Fresh from their improbable victory in the annual Hunger Games, Katniss and Peeta get to enjoy the spoils only briefly before they must partake in a Capitol-sponsored victory tour. But trouble is brewing—President Snow tells Katniss directly he won’t stand for being outsmarted, and she overhears rumbles of uprisings in Panem’s districts. Before long it’s time for the next round of games, and because it’s the 75th anniversary of the competition, something out of the ordinary is in order. If this second installment spends too much time recapping events from book one, it doesn’t disappoint when it segues into the pulse-pounding action readers have come to expect. Characters from the previous volume reappear to good effect: Katniss’s stylist, Cinna, proves he’s about more than fashion; Haymitch becomes more dimensional. But the star remains Katniss, whose bravery, honesty and wry cynicism carry the narrative. (About her staff of beauticians she quips: “They never get up before noon unless there’s some sort of national emergency, like my leg hair.”) Collins has also created an exquisitely tense romantic triangle for her heroine. Forget Edward and Jacob: by book’s end (and it’s a cliffhanger), readers will be picking sides—Peeta or Gale? Ages 12–up.

        Starred review from September 1, 2009
        Gr 7 Up-Every year in Panem, the dystopic nation that exists where the U.S. used to be, the Capitol holds a televised tournament in which two teen "tributes" from each of the surrounding districts fight a gruesome battle to the death. In "The Hunger Games" (Scholastic, 2008), Katniss Everdeen and Peeta Mellark, the tributes from impoverished District Twelve, thwarted the Gamemakers, forcing them to let both teens survive. In this rabidly anticipated sequel, Katniss, again the narrator, returns home to find herself more the center of attention than ever. The sinister President Snow surprises her with a visit, and Katniss's fear when Snow meets with her alone is both palpable and justified. "Catching Fire" is divided into three parts: Katniss and Peeta's mandatory Victory Tour through the districts, preparations for the 75th Annual Hunger Games, and a truncated version of the Games themselves. Slower paced than its predecessor, this sequel explores the nation of Panem: its power structure, rumors of a secret district, and a spreading rebellion, ignited by Katniss and Peeta's subversive victory. Katniss also deepens as a character. Though initially bewildered by the attention paid to her, she comes almost to embrace her status as the rebels' symbolic leader. Though more of the story takes place outside the arena than within, this sequel has enough action to please "Hunger Games" fans and leaves enough questions tantalizingly unanswered for readers to be desperate for the next installment."Megan Honig, New York Public Library"

        June 22, 2009
        Stephen King meets Dr. Zhivago. I am being less than fair in promoting the much-anticipated sequel to Collins's The Hunger Games (see my 2008 Best of the Year list) when it will not be out until September. My only excuse is that it gives the uninitiated a last chance to read the first book before this one climbs to the top of the children's best-sellers list. (Add yourself to your library's holds queue now!) The story takes place in a future world where teens are made to compete to the death in an annual tribute called the Hunger Games. At the conclusion of the first volume, the games' victors face an uncertain future at the hands of a cruel Capitol. All I will say about the second is that it is as much of a page-turner as the first and leaves the reader even more desperate for what comes next. Why It Is for Us: If heart-stopping adventure is not your cup of tea, consider reading The Hunger Games and Catching Fire for their winning characters and epic themes of oppression, rebellion, and love. Collins cannot write the third book fast enough.-Angelina Benedetti, King Cty. Lib. Syst., WA
