The Hunger Games (First Book in Hunger Games Series), Suzanne Collins
Science Fiction. A great book that I just finished reading, Hunger Games is about beating the odds and not surrendering.The Hunger Games takes place in the near future, where America has blown itself up and restarted again, calling itself Panem (bread in Latin). This is the setting for the Hunger Games, a game in which two children from each district -there's twelve- fight to the death for the entertainment of the upper class.
Katniss is one of these children. Throughout the book you follow Katniss and her companion Peeta as they battle through the hunger games and eventually emerge victorious, but not free. There's quite a bit of violence, as you would expect, I didn't cach any swearing but there's some kissing, lots of drinking, and some disturbing parts where people go crazy and start seeing things, but otherwise it's pretty clean. 13+
