If you've read The Hunger Games, I just know that you CAN'T
WAIT for the sequel Catching Fire. (If you haven't read it yet, you totally
have to!!! It is by far the BEST BOOK EVER for kids ages 12 and over. Go. Read. Now.)
Well, like I was saying, the wait is almost over for Catching
Fire. It will be in bookstores on September 1, so cancel all your other plans, clear
out your schedule and just block out all day for reading because once you
start, you are not going to want to stop reading for anything! I would suggest
asking people to bring you food so you don't starve to death — seriously, you
will not be able to put this book down!
So, do you want a sneak peek now? We have Chapter 1 for you to read, and an audio excerpt of Chapter 2 read by the author Suzanne Collins.
