    This book is about a girl called Katniss Everdeen. She lives in a world called Panem. In the world there are 12 districts. They all have to fight in “The hunger games” which is live on television. A boy and a girl is picked from every district. It is actual fighting where you kill people. If you are the last person alive… you win. There are three books in the series. It is absolutely brilliant. It is my favourite book of all time!!

    I thought the book was really good because there was this little girl that had a magic finger, and every time she got angry her magic finger would zap someone. She has neighbours that have guns.They use the guns to kill animals and eat them. But when the little girl finds out that they kill an animal she ZAPS the whole family.
    This book was really funny and very enjoyable.
