Description

Katniss Everdeen’s adventures may have come to an end, but her story continues to blaze in the hearts of millions worldwide.

In The Girl Who Was on Fire, thirteen YA authors take you back to Panem with moving, dark, and funny pieces on Katniss, the Games, Gale and Peeta, reality TV, survival, and more. From the trilogy's darker themes of violence and social control to fashion and weaponry, the collection's exploration of the Hunger Games reveals exactly how rich, and how perilous, protagonist Katniss’ world really is.

• How does the way the Games affect the brain explain Haymitch’s drinking, Annie’s distraction, and Wiress’ speech problems?
• What does the rebellion have in common with the War on Terror?
• Why isn’t the answer to “Peeta or Gale?” as interesting as the question itself?
• What should Panem have learned from the fates of other hedonistic societies throughout history—and what can we?

The Girl Who Was On Fire covers all three books in the Hunger Games trilogy.

Praise For The Girl Who Was on Fire

A fascinating collection of essays about the Hunger Games series … This book is LEGIT. All of the essays are thought-provoking and they really get into the heart and soul of the series. In fact, I’ll even bet you that you’ll come away from this book liking the series more than you did already.
—Forever Young Adult

My copy is completely highlighted, underlined, written in the margins, and dog-eared. You don’t know how many times while I was reading it I said emphatically to myself, “Yes!!” as I underlined or highlighted a quote or passage.
—Book Nerds Across America

A must-read for those interested in the Hunger Games.
