K10: Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins

The Kidliterati Ten is an interview series with young readers. We ask them about a favorite book and hope that you enjoy their answers.

Tell us a little about yourself: what is your first name, how old are you, and what is your favorite flavor of ice cream? 

My name is Raegan, and I’m 13. My favorite ice cream is Oreo Overload.

What book did you read and why did you choose it? 

I chose Catching Fire because I loved the first book in the series. This one is my favorite because you get to see who Katniss really is, why she started the rebellion, and her relationship with Peeta.

Can you describe this book in one word? 


What was your favorite part of this story? 

The end. It’s when Katniss finds out they left Peeta in the arena and you finally know how she really feels about him.

If you had a problem similar to the main character's problem, what would you do? 

I’d do exactly what Katniss does – I’d put family before myself.

What would you say to your best friend to convince them to read this book? 

I’d tell her it’s empowering for young girls—don’t always be the person getting saved, instead do the saving—girls have the power to save the world.

What do you think about the book's cover? 

I like the colors and it makes me want to read it.

Would you want to read another book about these characters? Why or why not? 

Yes, because I’d like to know where they went and how they turned out.

Can you name another book that reminds you of this one? 

Divergent, but I like The Hunger Games better.

If you could ask the author one question about this book what would it be? 

What was your inspiration for writing this story and the Katniss character?

Thanks, Raegan! I found this interview with the author where she talks about her inspiration for writing the series. It's really interesting. Interview with Suzanne Collins

Catching Fire
Against all odds, Katniss Everdeen has won the annual Hunger Games with fellow district tribute Peeta Mellark. But it was a victory won by defiance of the Capitol and their harsh rules. Katniss and Peeta should be happy. After all, they have just won for themselves and their families a life of safety and plenty. But there are rumors of rebellion among the subjects, and Katniss and Peeta, to their horror, are the faces of that rebellion. The Capitol is angry. The Capitol wants revenge.
