I just finished this YA novel by Suzanne Collins. I was looking for a read aloud that would inspire my students to read the sequels and I wanted a novel that might inspire their writing. I think I found it in this book.
I usually do not get hooked on a book, but I just loved this story. The movie is in development with a release date on 2011.
Once I finished the book, I immediately ordered the other two books.
