Return of the Hunger Games...

As many of you already know, the third book in the Hunger Games series will be released August 24th. Here is a sneak peek at the new cover:
Here's what USA today has to say about it: 'Game' over: Since the September release of Catching Fire, the second in Suzanne Collins' best-selling Hunger Games trilogy for teens, Internet speculation has focused on the title of the third book. The most common guess: The Victors. Not even close. Today, Scholastic reveals the title and cover of the last book in the series set in a dictatorship where teens are forced to fight to the death on TV. It's Mockingjay, out Aug. 24. In the series, mockingjays are offspring of mockingbirds and jabberjays, a government-bred mutant designed to spy on rebels. Mockingjays become symbols of resistance. Collins is finishing her screenplay of The Hunger Games, the first book. Catching Fire entered USA TODAY's Best-Selling Books list at No. 1.
If you haven't read this series, I highly encourage it. Put a copy on hold at the library today!
