Catching Fire is the second novel in Suzanne Collins's bestselling hunger Games Trilogy. Taking place immediately after the events of the first book, Katniss Everdeen stands alongside Peeta as the first dual victors of the 74th Hunger Games. Unfortunately for her, life is no easier than before the games as the seeds of rebellion have been spread across the districts and the Capitol is blaming Katniss. As she prepares for her victory tour, Katniss is faced with an entirely new set of problems including her faltering relationship with Peeta, the pressure of the Capitol, and the upcoming 75th hunger games in which she must serve as a mentor.
Catching Fire brings all of the suspense and twists of the first novel and ups the ante as Suzanne Collins crafts a journey that is hard to put down. Catching Fire follows Katniss once more as she again embarks on a seemingly impossible journey full of secrecy, deception, and violence. If you thought overcoming the first Hunger Games would be the greatest challenge Katniss would ever face, then prepare yourself. Catching Fire continues the fast paced, action packed adventure and somehow manages to step up the intensity from the first book.
If your looking for a book that will be nearly impossible to stop reading, this thrilling sequel is just what you have been searching for. - Justin L., class of 2012
