The book that our whole college will (hopefully!) be reading for the month of March is ‘The Hunger Games’ by Suzanne Collins. It is set in a post-apocalyptic world where children aged from 12 to 18 are selected by lottery to compete in a televised battle where only one person can survive. Since its first publication in 2008, it has been translated into 26 different languages and sold in 38 countries across the world.
It is the first book in a trilogy and a movie adaptation will be released in the United States later this month. The trailer for the movie is on www.thehungergames.co.uk
I encourage all students, staff and other members of the College Community to read this book and post a comment here if you would like to tell us what you think of it.
