Against all odds, Katniss Everdeen has won the annual Hunger Games. She and fellow district tribute Peeta Mellark are miraculously still alive. Katniss should be relieved, happy even. After all, she has returned to her family and her longtime friend, Gale. Yet nothing is the way Katniss wishes it to be. Gale holds her at an icy distance. Peeta has turned his back on her completely. And there are whispers of a rebellion against the Capitol — a rebellion that Katniss and Peeta may have helped create.
Much to her shock, Katniss has fueled an unrest she’s afraid she cannot stop. And what scares her more is that she’s not entirely convinced she should try. As time draws near for Katniss and Peeta to visit the districts on the Capitol’s cruel Victory Tour, the stakes are higher than ever. If they can’t prove, without a shadow of a doubt, that they are lost in their love for each other, the consequences will be horrifying.

This book will have you up late at night, ignoring friends or family, even giving up food it is that good. The entire time reading I was in a trance, Collins writes so well, I find it hard to concentrate on anything else but the characters. I don’t want to give anything away for those who haven’t had the chance of reading this book yet, thus I wont describe the book too much, just know that you need to read it!
Life after the Hunger Games is not exactly what Katniss thought it would be, and no where near as private. Once her and Peeta stepped of the train returning to District 12, her life changed drastically. Her family and her moved into the
Such a great read, I recommend all of you to read it. I am still trying to figure out if I like it more than The Hunger Games. I initially didnt know what to expect, and I got so much more than I was ready for. Collins has done it again and captivated me with her story.
READ! READ! READ! :)
(Briana and Marisa will probably add their thoughts about the book once they have read it! So stay posted for their thoughts!)
