I would argue, that this is the last good YA dystopian series. It kicked off the craze, but none could match what this series accomplished and the message it told. A summary if you're not familiar: In what was once North America, there is a nation that is split between 12 districts with one Capital that rules over them all. Every year, each district must send one female and one male tribute between the ages of 12-18 to fight to the death on live television, broadcast around the nation. This is the story of Katniss Everdeen, and how she reconciles with her society.
