I am so excited! It's here!

 

If you are reading it email me and tell me what you think.  We can discuss it as we read it. I enjoyed this book.  It is set before the 1st Hunger Games Book.  It is President Snows story.  

I of course ordered a copy for the library so if you cant get your hands on one before fall I will have it for you then.
