I think that this book was the 2nd best in the series 'cause personally, I think that "Catching Fire" was even better.
This book is about a girl named Katniss Everdeen and a boy named Peeta Mellark. In the beginning, Primrose Everdeen, Katniss's little sister, gets chosen in 1 in thousands of slips. Katniss volunteers to go on this Life-or-death event. "The Hunger Games" is a book that'll give you chills on the back. I recommend this book for ages 9-17
