The month's book is The Hunger Games! The story starts in a futuristic North America called Panem. Panem was made up of 13 districts who, seventy-four years ago, rebelled against the Capitol's cruelty. Their wrongdoings were not giving the districts enough food, leaving them to starve, making them work all day, and the Capitol still didn't do a thing. Therefore, the districts rebelled against the Capitol and started a war which the Capitol had won. As a reminder not to fight against the Capitol, they would select a male and female child between the ages of 12 and 18 from each district to participate in the annual "Hunger Games" which is a fight to the death on live TV until one lone victor remains. When twelve-year-old Primrose Everdeen is chosen as tribute for the seventy-fourth annual Hunger Games, her older sister, Katniss Everdeen, volunteers. The novel follows her adventure and journey to stay alive along with the male tribute of District 12, Peeta Mellark. This book is also a part of the Hunger Games trilogy which I loved reading. It was amazing! I am also very excited for the finale of the film series, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2, which will be coming out this November 20th. If you choose to read this trilogy, I hope you like it as much as I did!
