Scholastic is boasting—and justifiably so—about the news that Suzanne Collins’ teen novel Catching Fire is now the best-selling book in the country for any age group, according to bestseller lists just released by USA Today and the Wall Street Journal. This sequel to The Hunger Games is obviously drawing many adult readers, including several in our office who rave about this fast-paced read and its appealing young heroine, Katniss Everdeen. Though she won the Hunger Games, Katniss must face new problems in book two as she begins the Capitol’s cruel Victory Tour.
Collins is working on the third and final book in the Hunger Games trilogy and has done very few interviews for Catching Fire. We’re happy to report that BookPage was one of the lucky few—you can read our Q&A with the author in the September issue.
And speaking of lucky: we have a copy of Catching Fire for one lucky reader. Leave a comment below no later than Monday, Sept. 14, mentioning your favorite heroine in a book, and you’ll be entered in the drawing to win!
