I thoroughly enjoyed The Hunger Games, the first book of the trilogy of the same name. For young adult fiction, it's a fairly dark and violent story. In the distant future, a cruel and corrupt government controls the 12 districts that make up what used to be the United States. Each year, citizens of every district must send two children into the Hunger Games, a televised death match. The story follows 16-year-old Katniss Everdeen. Katniss is resourceful and tough but is she capable of murdering to stay alive in the Hunger Games arena?
