  4. Suzanne on Writing “I grab some cereal and sit down to work as soon as possible. The more distractions I have to deal with before I actually begin writing, the harder focusing on the story becomes. Then I work until I’m tapped out, usually sometime in the early afternoon. If I actually write three to five hours, that’s a productive day. Some days all I do is stare at the wall. That can be productive, too, if you’re working out character and plot problems. The rest of the time, I walk around with the story slipping in and out of my thoughts.”

  5. The Underland Chronicles Meet Gregor, a kid from New York City, who falls out of his laundry room into a fantastical subterranean world called the Underland. Accompanied by his toddler sister, Boots, he encounters giant talking creatures—cockroaches, bats, spiders and rats—and an unusual society of humans. And they’re all expecting him…

  8. The Hunger Games Katniss is a 16-year-old girl living in the poorest district of Panem: the remains of what used be the US. Long ago the districts waged war on the Capitol and were defeated. As part of the surrender terms, each district agreed to send one boy and one girl to appear in an annual televised event called, “The Hunger Games.” The terrain and rules may change but one thing is constant: kill or be killed. When her sister is chosen by lottery, Katniss steps up to go in her place.
