Catching Fire is the second movie in the Hunger Games series, and it is an absolute must-watch. The movie takes us deeper into the world of the Capitol and the life of the people living in the Districts. I enjoyed the exciting experience to watch the story unfold, with original characters and new ones being introduced. The movie is a great portrayal of the tension between the districts and the Capitol, and it does an excellent job of highlighting the 75th Hunger Games.

Charlie Thorne and the Lost City is about a girl named Charlie Thorne who is on the run
because she has dangerous information memorized. When she sets off on an adventure to find
Darwin’s secret discovery, she never imagined the adventures that she faces. I enjoyed this
book because it has a really smart main character and lots of unexpected challenges. My
favorite part is when Charlie gets taught how to paint her nails. I would recommend this book to
6th or 7th graders.
