Today I am very excited because I am posting an entry written by a colleague of mine, Nelia. She has shown her appreciation of this blog since the beginning, and she told me earlier on that she wanted to cooperate. So here is her piece! She has chosen to write about award-winning and bestselling futuristic trilogy for teen readers The Hunger Games, by Suzanne Collins.
THE HUNGER GAMES IS AN AMAZING TRILOGY.
In a future society with extreme differences among its inhabitants, the main event of the year is THE HUNGER GAMES, a reality show that everybody can see on TV.
The contestants are teenagers and the final prize is their own life…
Only one of the participants is the Victor, the winner, and the only way you can win is by killing all the others.
Adventure, survival game, thrilling situations and love are part of this story that will catch you interest from the very beginning.
The story is set in Panem, a sci-fi world divided into twelve districts, most of them poor, dominated by the rich and powerful Capitol which controls the population. Every year, Capitol chooses randomly a boy and a girl of each district in a “nice” ceremony called the Reaping, the selection.
Katniss, the main character of the story, volunteers to go to the games when she sees that her little sister, Prim, has been chosen this year as the tribute (= participant) of Distrit 12.
To know what happens next, you will have to read the book.
I hope you enjoy it as much as I did. Hurry up! the film will be released soon this year!!

1. Would you be interested in reading these books?
2. And in watching the film?
3. If your little sister or brother had to take place in these “games”, would you join for them?
4. Can you actually imagine something like that on TV?
Thank you so much, Nelia!!!
