Hunger Games companion book

The Girl Who Was on Fire

The Hunger Games movie premiere is still a few weeks away, but impatient fans can get a quick fix via a new book that explores Suzanne Collins’ popular young-adult trilogy. In The Girl Who Was on Fire, edited by Leah Wilson, 13 young-adult authors examine the girl in question—Katniss Everdeen—and the dystopian world she’s trying to survive. Here, essays such as “Your Heart Is a Weapon the Size of Your Fist,” “Team Katniss” and “Someone to Watch Over Me” take on topics such as teenage rebellion, terrorism and the history of the world as we’ve destroyed it. May the odds be ever in your favor.
