Against all odds, Katniss Everdeen has survived the Hunger Games twice. But now that she's made it out of the bloody arena alive, she's still not safe. The Capitol is angry. The Capitol wants revenge...This thrilling final instalment of this ground-breaking trilogy promises to be one of the most talked-about books of the year.

A Piece of Passion from Hilary Murray Hill, Managing Director, Scholastic Children’s Books:

The Hunger Games is a remarkable series which has captured the imagination of teenagers and adults alike since the first book, The Hunger Games, was published in January 2009. Katniss Everdeen, the girl who catches fire, is a heroine like no other, and we all felt we were there beside her as she battled her way through the dreadful Games, not once but twice. We will all be ready with bated breath to stand alongside Katniss once more as the rebellion comes to a climax. Will Katniss escape the growing threat of President Snow, and will it be Peeta or Gale at her side throughout this heart-stopping finale?”

The Hunger Games Trilogy:

1. The Hunger Games
2. Catching Fire
3. Mockingjay

Twilight author Stephenie Meyer: “ It’s not only lived up to my high expectations, it surpassed them. Suzanne takes the story places I wasn’t expecting, and she’s never afraid to take it to very hard places. Stunning. You won’t sleep when you’re reading this one. I suggest beginning in the early morning and clearing your calendar.”

If you like Suzanne Collins you might also like to read books by Julianna Baggott, Sandra Newman and Dana Stabenow.

Synopsis

Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins

The final book in the ground-breaking HUNGER GAMES trilogy. Against all odds, Katniss Everdeen has survived the Hunger Games twice. But now that she's made it out of the bloody arena alive, she's still not safe. The Capitol is angry. The Capitol wants revenge. Who do they think should pay for the unrest? Katniss. And what's worse, President Snow has made it clear that no one else is safe either. Not Katniss's family, not her friends, not the people of District 12.

The Mockingjay Part 1 is out on November 20th 2014

Reviews

The most eagerly awaited book this summer... wreathed in Harry Potter-like secrecy - Wall Street Journal

“Young Adult readers will devour the final book in the Hunger Games trilogy, but Collins’ adult fans may have to call in sick to work. Who wants to focus on the present when heroine Katniss Everdeen is in jeopardy in the post-apocalyptic future?” Time magazine

Praise for the Hunger Games Books

“I couldn’t stop reading... Addictive” Stephen King

“Rip-roaring, bare-knuckle adventure of the best kind... absorbing and morally challenging” The Times

“Brilliantly imagined” Daily Telegraph

“Terrifying, exhilarating and unexpectedly thought-provoking” Sunday Telegraph

“Gripping and at times terrifying” Independent on Sunday

“The stunning action sequences and the cleverness of concept and execution give this a haunting philosophical complexity and make it my book of the year” The Times

“Outstanding... Challenging as it is compelling” The Lady

About the Author

Suzanne Collins

Suzanne Collins has had a successful and prolific career writing for children's television. For preschool viewers, she penned multiple stories for the Emmy-nominated Little Bear and Oswald. She has worked on several Nickelodeon shows, including the Emmy-nominated hit Clarissa Explains it All and The Mystery Files of Shelby Woo. She received a Writer's Guild of America nomination for co-writing the critically acclaimed Rankin/Bass Christmas special, Santa, Baby! and most recently she was the head writer for Clifford’s Puppy Days.

Suzanne made her mark in children's literature with the New York Times–bestselling Underland Chronicles, which started with the acclaimed book Gregor the Overlander. In The Hunger Games, Suzanne Collins continues to explore the effect of violence on those coming of age. She was inspired to write The Hunger Games when an idea formed whilst she flicked between television channels broadcasting real war coverage and reality television programmes.

Film rights for The Hunger Games have been acquired by Nina Jacobson's Color Force production company - and Lionsgate has obtained worldwide film distribution rights. Suzanne is currently working on the screenplay.

Suzanne lives with her family in Connecticut.
