My favorite summer reading pick from this year's ninth grade summer reading list was The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins. It's about sixteen-year-old Katniss Everdeen, who accidentally becomes a contender in the annual Hunger Games, a grave competition hosted by the Capitol where young boys and girls are pitted against one another in a televised fight to the death. And the best news is that Book # 2, Catching Fire is available and Book # 3 (the final one!), Mockingjay is coming out on September 1st!
