Suzanne Collins

I didn’t know Suzanne Collins wrote other books (besides The Hunger Games) until I was assigned this for class.  While I definitely like The Hunger Games more, I sincerely enjoyed this one too.  The Underland world was pretty great.  I found myself especially favoring the relationship between Boots and the cockroaches.

There are more books in the series, though I’m not exactly sure how many.  I know more than four, possibly five.  This book ends in such a way that I’d be satisfied enough not to read the others.  We all know I’ll pick them up anyway.  I said I wouldn’t finish the Percy Jackson series and we all know how that ended.

In the mood for a classic kid-warrior saving the world with his gold heart and steadfast loyalty?  Need a fast read with a happy ending?  I’d try this one out then.  It’s got the potential to delightfully surprise you.
