Praised by writers from Stephen King to Stephenie Meyer, Suzanne Collins’ New York Times bestselling Hunger Games trilogy is dark, captivating, and deeply thought-provoking. Part straight-up survivalist adventure, part rich allegory, and part political thriller, the series has become a new YA favorite.
The Girl Who Was On Fire offers even more to think about for teen readers already engrossed by the Hunger Games. From the trilogy's darker themes of violence and social control to reality television, fashion, and weaponry, the collection's exploration of the Hunger Games by other YA writers reveals exactly how rich, and how perilous, protagonist Katniss’ world really is.
The Girl Who Was On Fire covers all three books in the Hunger Games trilogy.
Two anthologies in a row? What's with that? I just couldn't resist! I mean... not only is it about THE HUNGER GAMES but there are short stories by so many awesome authors including Sarah Rees Brennan and Carrie Ryan (two of my "must by everything they ever publish" authors!) Needless to say, this one will be on my shelves ASAP!
