The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
More information about the book

Variety is reporting that Gary Ross (Pleasantville, Seabiscuit) will direct a screenplay by Suzanne Collins, an adaptation of her own young adult thriller, The Hunger Games.

The first in the futuristic Hunger Games trilogy, the storyline features Katniss Everdeen, a 16-year-old girl living with her mother and younger sister in the poorest district of Panem, the remains of what used be the United States. Long ago the districts waged war on the Capitol and were defeated. As part of the surrender terms, each district agreed to send one boy and one girl to appear in an annual televised event called "The Hunger Games."

Earlier this year, First Clues: Mysteries for Kids featured a student-written review of The Hunger Games, who called the book "fast, compelling". The other books in the series are Catching Fire and Mockingjay.
