The Hunger Games
January 23, 2015
By Suzanne Collins
Years before the start of the series, the thirteen districts attempted to start a revolution against the Capitol. The Capitol
won, District 13 was destroyed and, as punishment, an annual televised death match called The Hunger Games was created by the Capitol. Two participants, one male and one female, known as tributes, between the ages of 12 and 18 are chosen randomly in a "reaping" from each district. Children may volunteer as a tribute instead of selection by ballot. They are taken to an arena and fight until only one is left alive.
Harry Potter and the Soccerer's Stone
January 21, 2015
By J.K. Rowling
One day just before his eleventh birthday, an owl tries to deliver a mysterious
letter—the first of a sequence of events that end in Harry meeting a giant man named Hagrid. Hagrid explains Harry's history to him: When he was a baby, the Dark wizard, Lord Voldemort, attacked and killed his parents in an attempt to kill Harry; but the only mark on Harry was a mysterious lightning-bolt scar on his forehead.
