Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins, 391 pages
In this sequel to The Hunger Games, Katniss finds herself readjusting to life outside the arena — struggling to sort out her feelings for Gale and Peeta, struggling with survivor's guilt, struggling to protect her family and friends from the government (which saw her final moves in the arena as an act of rebellion). In short, she's struggling. And guess what? It's not going to get any easier. This book ends on a cliffhanger, leading directly into Mockingjay, so I'll shortly be (re)reading that one too. These books are so good and so gripping.
