The Girl Who Was on Fire Summary

The Girl Who Was on Fire: Your Favorite Authors on Suzanne Collins' Hunger Games Trilogy by Leah Wilson

This is the only book to explore Suzanne Collins' popular "Hunger Games" trilogy, which has sold half a million copies, written by YA authors. 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 favourite. A film version of the first book, "The Hunger Games", is currently in development. "The Girl Who Was On Fire" offers even more to think about for teen readers already engrossed by the "Hunger Games". From the trilogy's darker themes of violence and social control to reality television, fashion, and weaponry, the collection's exploration of the "Hunger Games" by other YA writers reveals exactly how rich, and how perilous, protagonist Katniss' world really is. "The Girl Who Was On Fire" covers all three books in the "Hunger Games" trilogy.

The Girl Who Was on Fire Reviews


A fascinating collection of essays about the Hunger Games series This book is LEGIT. All of the essays are thought-provoking and they really get into the heart and soul of the series. In fact, I'll even bet you that you'll come away from this book liking the series more than you did already.
Forever Young Adult

My copy is completely highlighted, underlined, written in the margins, and dog-eared. You don't know how many times while I was reading it I said emphatically to myself, "Yes!!" as I underlined or highlighted a quote or passage.

A must-read for those interested in the Hunger Games.
