By Judy Sparzo, Bookmobile Librarian, Beaufort County Library

Dystopian fiction recommended for ages 12 to adult

Collins reveals juicy details about the backstory to the Hunger Games, including who conceived a “game” where children fight to the death; how Snow became pure evil; and the evolution of the games from a simple gladiator fight to a betting event with sponsors and a Victors’ Village for the winner. The odds are ever in your favor that you will devour this in one sitting! Audiobook | Book

This Is Skippy Jon Purdy, and he loves to read. Skippy's human is Wendy Purdy from the Bluffton Branch Library. His very favorite book is "Bits and Pieces" by Judy Schachner. It is a cute tale of love, family, and a night of adventure for old Tink who finds out how important his home is.
