The second novel in the trilogy Catching Fire, starts with Katniss Everdeen the girl on fire. Katniss has just gotten out of the 74th Hunger Games with Peeta Mellark and is now a victor. If you thought the Capitol couldn't get any more twisted... you were wrong. Before they head off to start the Victor’s Tour, Katniss is visited by President Snow. He warns her to stop the rebellious stunts because someone will get hurt. The next Hunger Games is a special one, the Quarter Quell. It celebrates the anniversaries of the tributes. On this Quell, the previous winners will have to go back and compete in the arena. This means Katniss and Peeta must go back and fight for their lives again. Will she make it out alive with Peeta? Will she even make it out at all?
This book was really good too. Out of all three this was my favorite. In my opinion it had the most adventure and kept you wanting to read more. There was so much action and drama I could not put the book down. I would recommend this book to mature teens in middle school since it has violence. This book appeals to guys and girls because it is filled with action but also has romance for the girls. The words in this novel were easy to comprehend but some were a little challenging. It would be helpful to read the first book, The Hunger Games before reading this one. I would also recommend this book to anyone who has read Twilight, The Maze Runner, or Divergent and has enjoyed the book. For anyone who likes adventure and survival this is the book for you!
