Good morning. I am Ms Sek.
‘If we burn, you burn with us!’ Does this sound familiar to you? This is a line taken from the novel called “The Hunger Games – Mockingjay” by Suzanne Collins. This is the third book in the Hunger Game series.
The speaker of this line is a 16-years old girl Katniss Everdeen. She lives in a country which makes its people in the twelve districts to join the Hunger Game. She volunteers to join the game to replace her sister. In the game, the representatives from each district compete and kill the other participants until one survivor is left.
Everyone in the country is watching this bloodshed game on TV as entertainment. Do you know why the government wants people to watch it? How does Katniss survive in the battlefield again and again? How does she challenge the authority and the rules of the Hunger Games? Is a revolution possible in face of oppression?
This is a story of courage and determination. I hope you will enjoy reading the Hunger Games series. Thank you.
