Hi, I've finished another great book, this one was called The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins. It was a futuristic book where the United States is no more but instead is this place called Panem. In this place there are 12 districts each responsible for something like agriculture, mining, explosives, etc.
It's not a very good place, people starve to death, get blown up in mines and oh this little game that the leaders put on each year to remind the downtrodden people that they can kill for no reason and will. Each year all children ages 12-18 are put into a pool and 1 boy and 1 girl are drawn from each district. Then they are put into an arena and have to kill each other to win the games. Gory huh! Anyway it ended up being a good book. It's also on the Best Books for Young Adults list and was a runner up for an award I think. It is a series and now there are lots of us at my library waiting on the edges of our seats on the sequel which isn't coming out till September! I haven't picked my next book but I'll let you know when I do! Hope everyone out there is doing well!
