(A Publishers Weekly Best Children's Book of 2009) Against all odds, Katniss Everdeen has won the annual Hunger Games with her fellow district tribute Peeta Mellark, in the opening of this second book in the series. But it was a victory won by defiance of the Capitol and the deliberately harrowing rules of the game, and though Katniss and Peeta should be happy to have survived and won prosperity for their families, they find themselves at the center of a deep swell of discontent. There are rumors of rebellion, with themselves as figureheads, and the Capitol wants to see them brought down. Suzanne Collins' stunning adventure series for young adults—the inspiration for the major motion picture The Hunger Games—is set in a bleak future world whose rulers demand that each of its 12 districts send 2 teenage tributes to fight to the death in the annual Hunger Games.

"Collins has done that rare thing. She has written a sequel that improves upon the first book."—NYTimes

"Reviewers were happy to report that the Hunger Games trilogy is alive and well, and all looked forward to the third book in the series after this one's stunning conclusion.... [In Catching Fire] Collins replicated her initial success at balancing action, violence, and heroism in a way that will enthrall young readers without giving them (too many) nightmares."—Bookmarks Magazine

"In this rabidly anticipated sequel, Katniss, again the narrator, returns home to find herself more the center of attention than ever. The sinister President Snow surprises her with a visit, and Katniss's fear when Snow meets with her alone is both palpable and justified. Catching Fire is divided into three parts: Katniss and Peeta's mandatory Victory Tour through the districts, preparations for the 75th Annual Hunger Games, and a truncated version of the Games themselves.... Though more of the story takes place outside the arena than within, this sequel has enough action to please Hunger Games fans and leaves enough questions tantalizingly unanswered for readers to be desperate for the next installment."—School Library Journal (starred review)
