Boy do I have a gem for all of you.
Science Fiction + Romance + Action + Adventure + Friendship + Sibling Loyalty = The Hunger Games.
The Hunger Games, by Suzanne Collins, is an absolutely brilliant tale, for all ages. It is an excellent read, for adults and children alike, I cannot stress that enough. Furthermore, it is especially wonderful for both male and female reluctant teenage readers.
READ it BEFORE the MOVIE comes out.
Parents, I promise you that your children will need a copy of the second book, Catching Fire, and the final book, Mockingjay.
You will not be disappointed.
