by Suzanne Collins [YA Collins]
This is the second time I have read Catching Fire, yet I was holding my breath throughout the whole book. I love the plot in this book, because Katniss is torn between marrying Peeta, who loves her but she must act like she loves him also, or choosing Gale, who she is in love with and has known her whole life. Katniss has become the leader of the rebels without her knowing, ever since she had held up those berries at the end of the Hunger Games. Then, Katniss and Peeta end up in the Games again, and have to try to survive. Suzanne Collins is an amazing writer, with spectacular ideas for books. I love how in this book, opposed to The Hunger Games, Katniss becomes a rebel and shows more of her true side throughout the book. -- review submitted by Helen L. - a customer of the Gere Branch Libray
In this second book of the Hunger Games trilogy Katniss and Peeta go on their district tour as they still try to keep up their star-crossed lover status. Everyone is happy until the Quarter Quell comes up. Tributes that have won are being put in the Games once again. Haymitch can't go so Katniss and Peeta train together. When they are in the Capitol Snow keeps a close eye on them. During the interview Peeta "proposes' to Katniss to make them look like they are in love. As the Games approach they meet past winners such as, Johanna Mason and Finnick O'Dair. When they are put in the arena they discover it is like a clock. Then when Katniss blows the force field it goes dark and she is in a helicopter with Gale. He says that Peeta and some of the other tributes had been kidnapped by the Capitol because they did not have time to save them. Then Gale says something that changes Katniss foeever. What is it? Read to find out! -- review submitted by Ashley A. - a customer of the Gere Branch Library
