Staff Pick: "Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes" by Suzanne Collins

Before Katniss Everdeen became a tribute for her district in the Hunger Games, a tribute from her district was paired with a future president.

In the new prequel novel Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes by Suzanne Collins, young Coriolanus Snow is assigned to be a mentor to a female tribute from District 12 for the tenth annual Hunger Games. It's not an assignment Coriolanus wants, but the great Snow family has fallen on difficult times. Coriolanus competes against his classmates to help the young woman for the games. Outside of the arena, he begins to feel for her. His decisions and actions will impact his future and that of Panem.
