The Hunger Games (Book 1) by Suzanne Collins
 
Book Club Recommended
Adventurous, Dramatic, Interesting
A great time was had by all..

I was a little hesitant to bring this "young adult" book to our club, but was happily surprised to find that most of the club members were already into the third book by the time our club met! It's not terribly difficult and a good read. It can be emotional and is interesting if you compare it to the world we live in today.

An amazing story... and it's all true!

Leymah Gbowee (pronounced Lee-ma Bow-ee) writes the incredibly heartbreaking and inspirational story of her life. Growing up in a home with dreams of college, friends and family, her life takes a drastic turn for the worse. Pushed over the edge by war and a bad decision (haven't we all done that?) she finds herself at her lowest point when she decides (with the help of others) to bring herself back. Death and destruction surround her yet she is adamant in her change to better her children's lives.
In finding the strength to give back and help others who are also in dire straights she heals herself and eventualy becomes the figure head of a peace movement by and for women. Her modest and honest approach empowers the women of Liberia (as well as other countries) causing a revolution of peace. She says herself it's not over, but with more people like the Nobel Peace Prize winning author, there is hope.

Real people

This book was about fictional people who were flawed as we all are. Two families are intertwined by the patriarch who they both share and together (and separately) they have to make their way through life.
