Book Title : Catching Fire
Format: Hardcover
Author: Suzan Collins
Length/number of pages: 289
Price : 13.99

Short Summary: Katniss Everdeen has to go back into the hunger games for the Quarter Quell. But it’s different scenery. And this game works like a clock. There are twice as many tributes because two victors from each district has to go in. This happens every twenty-five years. Some new characters are in this, too. Also their beloved district won’t be there anymore When Katniss returns to what she thinks is home. Some people believe that there is a thirteenth district; they are headed there because their districts are getting attacked because of some recent uprisings that have occurred in a few of the districts.

Peeta has to go back into the games to protect Katniss but she is really trying to protect him because last time Haymitch and Peeta were set on protecting her. Also they have to convince everyone one that they are in love because some districts think it’s just an act and some people aren’t very happy with them.

 Strengths/Weaknesses/Favorite Parts: My favorite part was when Katniss blew up the forcefield and they took them out of the games. And Peeta disappeared but a few people think he’s dead because they don’t know where he went.

Rating (out of five chocolate bars) 5
Appropriateness: Anyone
Cover Thoughts: I thought it represented the book very well because the mocking jay was what Katniss wore in the hunger games and it represented her district. And it still does throughout the entire series
