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!

The Girl Who Was on Fire – Movie Edition
Posted December 15th

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...

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...

What People Are Saying

In all, I would say that [The Girl Who Was on Fire] is a great collection of essays on the series. I was interested in all of them in some way, and I found a lot of interesting tidbits to use as discussion starters in my class.

— Allie at A Literary Odyssey

Overall, I liked The Girl Who Was On Fire and felt like I was discussing the Hunger Games with friends all over again. The moving and thought-provoking essays are a definite must-read for every Hunger Games fan!

— Giota at A Story Untold

Each author handled the subject matter very well–their love of the series comes through with their thought-provoking realizations and theories. I’m so glad that I had a chance to read this compilation about Suzanne Collin’s trilogy because The Hunger Games is the kind of series that provokes discussion and The Girl Who Was On Fire not only allowed me to jump right back into the world that Suzanne Collins created, but gave me a new appreciation for the series.
