Katniss Everdeen's adventures may have come to an end, but her story continues to blaze in the hearts of millions worldwide.

In The Girl Who Was on Fire, thirteen YA authors take you back to Panem with moving, dark, and funny pieces on Katniss, the Games, Gale and Peeta, reality TV, survival, and more. From the trilogy's darker themes of violence and social control to fashion and weaponry, the collection's exploration of the Hunger Games reveals exactly how rich, and how perilous, protagonist Katniss' world really is.

? How does the way the Games affect the brain explain Haymitch's drinking, Annie's distraction, and Wiress' speech problems?
? What does the rebellion have in common with the War on Terror?
? Why isn't the answer to ?Peeta or Gale? as interesting as the question itself?
? What should Panem have learned from the fates of other hedonistic societies throughout history?and what can we?

The Girl Who Was On Fire covers all three books in the Hunger Games trilogy.

CONTRIBUTORS: Jennifer Lynn Barnes, Mary Borsellino, Sarah Rees Brennan, Terri Clark, Bree Despain, Adrienne Kress, Cara Lockwood, Elizabeth M. Rees, Carrie Ryan, Ned Vizzini, Lili Wilkinson, Blythe Woolston, Sarah Darer Littman
