The Hunger Games is a book for children but I don't think any second or third grade teacher would read this to her students. It is a horror story written by Suzanne Collins that requires each new of the 12 districts of North America to send two children to the games where someone will be killed. It is like a Stephen King horror novel.
Book: The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
Response of bookclub members: Several folks liked the book but most found it way to scary to read word for word so they just skimmed thru the book.
