Includes 3 brand new essays on Gale, the Games, and Mockingjay!

**Already read the first edition of The Girl Who Was on Fire? Look for The Girl Who Was on Fire - Booster Pack in the Kindle store to get just the three new essays and the extra movie content.**

Katniss Everdeens 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 - Movie Edition, sixteen YA authors take you back to the world of the Hunger Games 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, Panem, and the series, really is.

• How does the way the Games affect the brain explain Haymitchs drinking, Annies distraction, and Wiress speech problems?

• What does the rebellion have in common with the War on Terror?

• Why isnt 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?

Synopsis:

Praised by writers from Stephen King to Stephenie Meyer, Suzanne Collins New York Times bestselling Hunger Games trilogy is dark, captivating and deeply thought-provoking. Part straight-up survivalist adventure, part rich allegory and part political thriller, the series has become a new YA favorite. A film version of the first book, The Hunger Games, starring Academy Award-nominated actress Jennifer Lawrence, will be released in March 2012.

The first edition of The Girl Who Was on Fire offered even more to think about for teen readers already engrossed by the Hunger Games. From the trilogys darker themes of violence and social control to reality television, fashion and weaponry, the collections exploration of the Hunger Games by other YA writers revealed exactly how rich, and how perilous, protagonist Katniss world really is. The Girl Who Was on Fire - Movie Edition, released just in time for the release of the first Hunger Games film, includes three brand new essays to take readers even deeper into this challenging YA phenomenon.

Topics include:

* How does the way the Games affect the brain explain Haymitchs drinking, Annies distraction, and Wiress speech problems?

* What does the rebellion have in common with the War on Terror?

* Why isnt 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 Hunger Games series was riviting and made one think of the possibilities of it"s possibilities. I hated the concept but the story in itself was a book I couldn't put down. The writting was very well done, Susan Collins has a special gift.
