Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins. Futuristic mortal combat reality show based on 24 teens chosen via lottery to represent their districts.
I loved it and Daysa loved it. This is one of those books that I read and I said "OK, this will be big." Both Daysa and I are upset that we have to wait years now for the second one. This is a Young Adult book --watch for it to be released October 2008.
