Burning for more of the Hunger Games?
The Girl Who Was on Fire - Movie Edition
Your Favorite Authors on Suzanne Collins’ Hunger Games Trilogy
Edited by Leah Wilson
Katniss Everdeen’s adventures may have come to an end, but her story continues to blaze in the hearts of millions worldwide.
In The Girl Who Was on Fire - Movie Edition, sixteen YA authors take you back to Panem with moving, dark, and funny pieces on Katniss, the Games, Gale and Peeta, reality TV, survival, and more.
- How does the way the Games affect the brain explain Haymitch’s drinking, Annie’s distraction, and Wiress’ speech problems?
- What does the rebellion have in common with the War on Terror?
- Why isn’t the answer to “Peeta or Gale?” as interesting as the question itself?
- What should Panem have learned from the fates of other hedonistic societies throughout history—and what can we?
The Girl Who Was On Fire covers all three books in the Hunger Games trilogy.
E-Book Version Only: Get access to special movie content from our writers right after the release of The Hunger Games end of March!

Why are we putting out a Movie Edition of The Girl Who Was on Fire?

For our new edition, we drafted Brent Hartinger, Jackson Pearce, and Diana Peterfreund to write essays for us: on mixed opinions of Mockingjay; why we shouldn’t forget about...
A few weeks ago, we asked you all to help us out by answering some Hunger Games poll questions. More than 200 of you were kind enough to comply (many of you without even entering to win one of the books we were offering as thanks)!
As I mentioned then, the reason for those poll questions was a presentation I was putting together on the Hunger Games for One Book Sarasota. And I promised I’d share that presentation when I returned.
So with the help of Keynote, Quicktime, and YouTube—and with thanks...
