"Catching Fire" by Suzanne Collins

Katniss and Peeta are living the lives of champions. They have their own houses, can help their families, and can also help others in their town. But, what about the love story from the Hunger Games? Katniss thinks she can live her own life now, but a stolen kiss, and a visit from the president change all that for her. Then, everyone finds out that the special 75th iteration of the games will be comprised of past champions. As the arena awaits her once again, Katniss must face her choices. She has angered the president and he seems set on revenge. Can she thwart his plot? Will she be able to kill any of the other champions in the arena? And, what about a rebellion? Is there really one in the air? "Catching Fire" is a fitting sequel to "The Hunger Games."

This is another "can't put it down" kind of book. Following the themes of "The Hunger Games," readers are first given a glimpse of life as a champion only to have it ripped away from those champions so they can once again visit the arena. The characters I didn't like in the first book, reappeared more despicable than ever. Then there were the characters I love, and I won't give any of that away. I highly recommend this book and am now moving on to "Mockingjay!"
