New Giveaway - The Hunger Games - Book 2 - Catching Fire (Suzanne Collins)

We had such a good response to our giveaway for the first Hunger Games book by Suzanne Collins that we've decided to giveaway a brand new copy of book two in the series - Catching Fire. Book two sees Katniss re-enter The Hunger Games game zone, but this time she has the whole of the Capitol against her.

Katniss is portrayed throughout the series as a steely teenaged action heroine. To win a brand new copy of Catching Fire just leave a comment telling us which female heroine in teenage fictional history most inspires you. A couple that come to my mind include Ellie from the Tomorrow When the War Began series and Elspeth Gordie from the Obernewtyn Chronicles. Entries are open until 5pm EST on Friday 6th August. The competition is open to residents of Australia, New Zealand, Canada, USA and the UK. The winner of the competition will be announced on Monday 9th August. Good luck to everyone!!

  1. Yeah! Comment #1!

    My favorite character is definitely Kit from "The Witch of Blackbird Pond". She is smart, beautiful, kind, and, most importantly, stood up for what she believed in, regardless of the consequence.

  6. I like Rose from Vampire Academy because she's so strong and self-reliant. She doesn't need a guy to rescue her every five minutes, and she's not afraid to say what she's thinking.

  19. Hello
    I am going to have to go with Katniss. She has so much responsibility and courage for a girl her age. She amazes me on being able to handle and learn from all the obstacles she has come across, from the hunger games to providing and loving her family. She is a true hero. I am so excited for this next book! Melissa
