THE HUNGER GAMES BY SUZANNE COLLINS:
It's a triology about a girl in the future North America, Panem, named Katniss Everdeen who enters the Hunger Games- a 'game' held by the govenment where 24 children, a boy and a girl from each district, are chosen to fight to the death with one winner. Will she survive or will she just become another pawn of the Capitol?
The book is followed by two more, Catching Fire, and then Mockingjay.
SOMEONE NAMED EVA BY JOAN M. WOLF:
It takes place during World War II and it is based on true events, however it's not your typical holocaust story.
Milada was a normal Czech girl, until her world got turned upside down. Nazis swarm her town- and nobody knows why. Children are taken- the 'best' ones. The ones with blonde hair and blue eyes. They are taught German. They are given new names. They are forbidden to speak Czech or use their old names. They are taught to adore Hitler. They are training to become perfect German citizens... but Eva doesn't want to let go. Will she have the strength to fight for her old life or will she be adopted into a new German family and lose her old life- as well as herself- forever?

However, Kyra is beginning to question her faith in her community. She even begins to read- which is against the rules. Even worse, she begins to have secret meetings with a boy.
Will Kyra choose her faith and her family or her heart?
