Books 9 & 10: Catching Fire and Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins
Being a YA book, it was not a challenging book for me, but I do see how it is a book that will challenge younger readers, maybe not by the writing, although that is not dumbed down, but certainly by the subject matter.
So here is where I play stupid. I am so out of the current literature scene and even more out of the YA book scene I may be just talking out my tookis, but I can't say I know of a ton of books for teens that deal with a strictly dystopian future, maybe Lord of the Flies? (have to admit I have not read this). I think it is a good book to introduce such a concept, gives you something to think about.
I can see why this trilogy caught on. I love the heroine, Katniss and I loved Peeta even more.
