By Marie Lu
She did not find any of this strange, at least in the very beginning. In the very beginning she was an even smaller girl than she was now, four or five or six years old, hardly able to see over the window’s ledge. People in dark robes came to visit her three times a day. In the morning they would come to give her a bowl of milk and a slice of warm bread. At midday they would give her bread and cheese and a little meat, and at night they would give her the same. Twice a week, an old woman would bathe her and help her into clean clothes—always a white linen shirt and a pair of linen pants. Then she would brush the knots out of the girl’s dark hair and leave her to her thoughts.
No, the girl did not wonder often about what might exist underneath the clouds. But she did wonder, now and then, why the people who served her always gave her looks of terror.
Why should they be so afraid of a little girl?"
After I read the book I sat thinking about it for many nights. There are so many details about the book that trigger so many feelings. The Hunger Games, is truly one of the best books I have read In a long time. It is easily my favorite book of all time, I can't wait to read catching fire, I'm sure it will be just as good or even better then hunger games.
