After surviving the Hunger Games, Katniss's troubles are far from over. She has sparked a rebellion and the Capital will do anything to take her down. Check out Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins.

Author: Suzanne Collins

You’d think winning the Hunger Games would have made Katniss’s hard life in District 12 a whole lot easier—a big house for her family, plenty of food, admiration from her community. But she got a little more than she bargained for after cleverly outwitting the gamemakers.

The Survival Pact

When she and Peeta (the male competitor from her district) were the only survivors left in the arena, they refused to kill each other. Instead, they threatened to eat poisonous berries, killing themselves and leaving the Hunger Games without a winner. To prevent disaster, the capital made history and announced both Katniss and Peeta as winners.

Fake Love

Now Katniss is paying for her trickery. President Snow fears that her survival tactic in the arena will cause a rebellion throughout the 12 districts of Panem. He forces Katniss to continue playing up the strategy that she and Peeta used to win fans in the arena—pretend to be in love. But this is not an easy feat. Her fake relationship with Peeta is damaging her friendship (and secret love) with Gale, her childhood best friend.

Walking On Thin Ice

If Katniss doesn’t keep up her end of the bargain, more than her own life will be at stake. The capital will hurt the people she loves: her mother, her little sister, Gale…even Gale’s family. But it seems her small act of rebellion has already caused an uprising in many of the districts. And Katniss’s game token, a mockingjay pin, has become the symbol of rebellion.

The Bottom Line

Catching Fire builds on the drama and barbarism of The Hunger Games. It’s more exciting, more intense, and the evolving relationships are more intriguing. This series is amazing. And lucky for fans…there’s still more to come!
