"Sparks Will Fly!"
Bookworm's Ranking - 4 Worms
Author - Suzanne Collins
Publisher - Large Print Press, a part of Gale, Cengage Learning; Published in 2012 by arrangement with Scholastic, Inc (Info from Copyright page)
Age Group - 16 and up
Content - *May Contain Spoilers* Katness and Peeta defend and protect each other from the Capital. Lots of lying. Katness gets drunk once, Peeta squashes that quickly. A contestant in the games gets naked to cause discomfort (not described in detail, though) and Peeta laughs at Katness because she is uncomfortable about it. Someone claims to be pregnant but you know nothing has happened and they are not.
Personal Opinion - Catching Fire did just what Hunger Games did; hooked my in seconds and didn't let go... Ended in such a way that it still has me. Katness and Peeta are such fabulous characters that they just take me on their journey and make me want to know what happens next. Also, a bunch of stuff I never saw coming happened that added suspense and excitement to the book. The only thing I didn't like was the characters lying and being naked (there was one more thing but it might spoil the book). The book was also a little more violent so I feel it is more appropriate for a teen age group. But it was still good and gave examples of self-sacrifice, fighting to protect others and for justice.
