      Description
      The New York Times bestselling The Hunger Games, with an all-new cover from the major motion picture!

      In the ruins of a place once known as North America lies the nation of Panem, a shining Capitol surrounded by twelve outlying districts. The Capitol is harsh and cruel and keeps the other districts in line by forcing them to participate in the annual Hunger Games, a fight-to-the-death on live TV.

      One boy and one girl between the ages of twelve and sixteen are selected by lottery to play. The winner brings riches and favour to his or her district. But that is nothing compared to what the Capitol wins: one more year of fearful compliance with its rule. Sixteen-year-old Katniss Everdeen, who lives alone with her mother and younger sister, regards it as a death sentence when she is forced to represent her impoverished district in the Games.

      But Katniss has been close to dead before - and survival, for her, is second nature. Without really meaning to, she becomes a contender. But if she is to win, she will have to start making choices that weigh survival against humanity and life against love.

      Acclaimed writer Suzanne Collins, author of the New York Times bestselling Underland Chronicles, delivers equal parts suspense and philosophy, adventure and romance, in this stunning novel set in a future with unsettling parallels to our present.

      Bio
      Suzanne Collins is the author of the bestselling Underland Chronicles series, which started with Gregor the Overlander. In The Hunger Games trilogy, Collins continues to explore the effects of war and violence on those coming of age. Suzanne lives with her family in Connecticut.

      Description
      From #1 New York Times bestselling author Meg Cabot, the dark reimagining of the Persephone myth begun in Abandon continues...into the Underworld.

      Seventeen-year-old Pierce Oliviera isn't dead.

      Not this time.

      But she is being held against her will in the dim, twilit world between heaven and hell, where the spirits of the deceased wait before embarking upon their final journey.

      Her captor, John Hayden, claims it's for her own safety. Because not all the departed are dear. Some are so unhappy with where they ended up after leaving the Underworld, they've come back as Furies, intent on vengeance...on the one who sent them there and on the one whom he loves.

      But while Pierce might be safe from the Furies in the Underworld, far worse dangers could be lurking for her there...and they might have more to do with its ruler than with his enemies.

      And unless Pierce is careful, this time there'll be no escape.

      "This fast-paced sequel is filled with action, romance, revenge, and lots of suspense. Cabot's main characters become more defined while new ones add some spice to the plotline.
