Catching Fire (The Hunger Games, #2) by Suzanne CollinsSparks are igniting.
Flames are spreading.
And the Capitol wants revenge.
Against all odds, Katniss has won the Hunger Games. She and fellow District 12 tribute Peeta Mellark are miraculously still alive. Katniss should be relieved, happy even. After all, she has returned to her family and her longtime friend, Gale. Yet nothing is the way Katniss wishes it to be. Gale holds her at an icy distance. Peeta has turned his back on her completely. And there are whispers of a rebellion against the Capitol - a rebellion that Katniss and Peeta may have helped create.
Much to her shock, Katniss has fueled an unrest shes afraid she cannot stop. And what scares her even more is that shes not entirely convinced she should try. As time draws near for Katniss and Peeta to visit the districts on the Capitols cruel Victory Tour, the stakes are higher than ever. If they cant prove, without a shadow of a doubt, that they are lost in their love for each other, the consequences will be horrifying.
In Catching Fire, the second novel in the Hunger Games trilogy, Suzanne Collins continues the story of Katniss Everdeen, testing her more than ever before...and surprising readers at every turn.
There has been mucho talk online via social media channels as to what age kids can begin to read The Hunger Games book series and watch the movies. The most recent release is rated PG and the books fall under the "Young Readers" genre that tends to focus on year olds depending on the publisher. The theater was buzzing with excitement. There were more teens than tweens children ranging between the ages of which is a natural given the movie's PG rating. The movie really is suited for older tweens as there is plenty of drama and intensity. Prior to and following the premiere, I asked some parents and kids in attendance for their views and reactions to the movie. The responses were an interesting gender differentiation.
