SM's Book Recommendation

Stephenie posted a book recommendation on her site: The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins. It sounds awesome!

Here's the Amazon synopsis:

Katniss is a 16-year-old girl living with her mother and younger sister in the poorest district of Panem, the remains of what used be the United States. Long ago the districts waged war on the Capitol and were defeated. As part of the surrender terms, each district agreed to send one boy and one girl to appear in an annual televised event called, "The Hunger Games." The terrain, rules, and level of audience participation may change but one thing is constant: kill or be killed. When Kat's sister is chosen by lottery, Kat steps up to go in her place.

Kind of reminds me of Shirley Jackson's short story "The Lottery." Ever read that? Anyway, I'll probably pick this one up soon.

4 enjoyed the bouquet.:
