Catching Fire (The Hunger Games Series, Book Two) by Suzanne Collins – An excellent, but very intense story of a futuristic world in which kids are forced to fight in gladiatorial games for the amusement of their conquerors. This second book has a distinct theme of remembering who the real enemy is – and it points away from our immediate human enemy and toward a broader concept of evil. High school.
