About the Novel:
Catching Fire follows the events surrounding the dramatic end to The Hunger Games. Katniss and Peeta return home to District 12, where life is much different than when they left. Katniss is reunited with her family, but finds herself distant from Gale and Peeta. When it's time for their Victory Tour, Katniss and Peeta must once again put on a show for the citizens of Panem. During this tour, it becomes clear to both that their display in the arena ignited a rebellion against the Capitol. Katniss now must convince both President Snow and Panem that she is deeply in love with Peeta in order to prove her actions in the games were that of love and not of defiance. With the 75th anniversary of the Hunger Games looming, Katniss learns that her days in the arena are far from over.
