Catching Fire (Hunger Games #2)
by Suzanne Collins
"Catching Fire" is the second book in Suzanne Collins's "Hunger Games" trilogy. In "Catching Fire", Katniss and Peeta are on their Victory Tour through all of the districts, having won "The Hunger Games" in Book 1. Katniss is trying to convince President Snow that she is, indeed, in love with Peeta, so that Snow doesn't go kill Gale. She is also trying to suppress the Districts because some have started a rebellion and are using her as their spokesperson. She fails to do both. Having a slight hope that President Snow will leave her and Peeta alone after the Victory Tour, Katniss is utterly surprised when it is learned that the participants for the 75th Hunger Games (aka the Quarter Quell) will be drawn from the victors of each district--one boy and one girl.
Since Katniss is the only girl victor from District 12, she automatically goes back into the games.
The Games almost broke her once. Can she survive them a second time?
Most people thought that "The Hunger Games" is the best book in the series, but I think I actually liked "Catching Fire" better.
