Product description

"Everything you would expect from Collins is
here: fraught teenage love; plenty of violence... the themes of
friendship, betrayal, authority and oppression will please and thrill"
The Guardian
"It works beautifully... please don't
make us wait another decade" The Times

Ambition will fuel him.
will drive him.
But power has its price.

It is the morning of the reaping that will kick off the tenth
annual Hunger Games. In the Capitol, eighteen-year-old Coriolanus
Snow is preparing for his one shot at glory as a mentor in the Games.
The once-mighty house of Snow has fallen on hard times, its
fate hanging on the slender chance that Coriolanus will be able
to outcharm, outwit, and outmaneuvre his fellow students to mentor
the winning tribute.

The odds are against him. He's been given the humiliating assignment
of mentoring the female tribute from District 12, the lowest
of the low. Their fates are now completely intertwined - ; every
choice Coriolanus makes could lead to favour or failure, triumph
or ruin. Inside the arena, it will be a fight to the death. Outside
the arena, Coriolanus starts to feel for his doomed tribute...
and must weigh his need to follow the rules against his desire
to survive no matter what it takes.

Three books, four films and one worldwide phenomenon,
The Hunger Games changed the face of global YA.

Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes was a global number one hit
in hardback.
Don't miss the book that *everyone* will be talking about this summer.
