In a surprise announcement, Scholastic announced this morning that Hunger Games author Suzanne Collins has written a prequel to The Hunger Games,

With this book, I wanted to explore the state of nature, who we are, and what we perceive is required for our survival,” she said. “The reconstruction period 10 years after the war, commonly referred to as the Dark Days — as the country of Panem struggles back to its feet — provides fertile ground for characters to grapple with these questions and thereby define their views of humanity.”


The book is set well before the lifetime of “Hunger Games” heroine Katniss Everdeen, played by Jennifer Lawrence in the billion-dollar movie franchise. Scholastic spokeswoman Tracy van Straaten declined comment on the new book’s contents or featured characters beyond what’s described in Monday’s announcement.

Needless to say, all the Jabberjays are floored, and we’re so excited to have something new to discuss with you all over the next 337 days!
