February 2012 - Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins

This book is published by Scholastic, so it is Young Adult. 

A reason for our selection is that it has won several awards and was reviewed by Stephen King who wrote the book we just read in January.  Further, several of us have children who have read it, so we want to see what it is about.
