Catching Fire

Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins

Just months after Katniss Everdeen defied the Capitol by not only surviving the Hunger Games, but saving her "boyfriend" in the process, the shock of all that death and destruction is still with her.

She still remembers all of the people she killed and those who were killed in front of her; and her nightmares about what she has seen are so bad that only Peeta can help her sleep long.

But nightmares are the least of her problems now. It turns out that her personal act of defiance has begun to spark rebellion among the 12 districts and the President blames her.

On a tour through the districts, Kat sees even more acts of rebellion, as well as those who would kill it... literally. Without her knowledge, she has become the symbol of the revolution. She and the President know that her death would end all trouble he has... but only if done right.

So he has another Hunger Game and forces Kat, Peeta, and other previous winners to fight to the death once again.

Somehow, Kat must save the world that she knows even while she fights it with all the strength that she has, even while saving herself, her family, her friends, and her fiancee.

Note: this is the second book of The Hunger Games series. It is highly recommended that you read The Hunger Games, by Suzanne Collins, before reading Catching Fire.
