Today is the day! Our inaugural Segullah Book Club Discussion. We’ll be discussing four books a year here on the blog, and we’re kicking things off with a novel that’s had readers buzzing since its release in August: Suzanne Collins’ Mockingjay.
Mockingjay is the final book in the Hunger Games series, a trilogy of novels aimed at teen readers that has found crossover success with adults. The Hunger Games novels explore a dystopian future where a powerful central government (the Capitol) keeps each outlying “district” in line by hosting The Hunger Games, a yearly event where one adolescent boy and one adolescent girl from each district are chosen by lottery to fight to the death. The series’ protagonist, 16-year-old Katniss Everdeen, volunteers for the games to take the place of her 12-year-old sister.
