Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins
Review by Mikayla, Cloverdale, 11th grade
In this thrilling, suspenseful sequel to The Hunger Games Katniss is confronted by President Snow. President Snow saw Katniss and Peeta's stunt with the berries and he's not happy. President Snow knows that Katniss doesn't love Peeta and the berry incident has caused uprisings. President Snow tells Katniss that she must convince all of Panem, as well as President Snow himself, that she is truly in love with Peeta Mellark. Then Katniss and Peeta are forced back into the arena to fight to the death once more. Only this time there's a twist. Katniss and Peeta aren't fighting for the first time...neither are the rest of the competitors. Who will Katniss choose to love...Gale or Peeta? Will Katniss make it out of the arena alive? Will Peeta?
