We both picked up this book in the year 2008, not knowing how mind blowing it would be, and due to its increasing popularity we felt we should recommend it to all book lovers.
The refreshing plot line revolves around sixteen year-old Katniss Everdeen, who lives in a dystopic age. Every year, two children from each district (of which there are twelve) are selected to compete in the perilous Hunger Games where contestants must fight to the death.
In a moment of panic, after her sister's name is drawn, Katniss volunteers to go in her place. Joining her, is Peeta Mellark, a boy, who is later revealed to have a huge crush on and who Katniss owes her life to.
