As much as I wish to, I shall not do any spoilers here, so read on.
The story picks up where the first book leaves off and throughout the entire book, we see how the Capitol works to subdue the rebellion Katniss had inadvertently started at the end of the games.
It's a good book to read even on its own as Collins has infused bits of the first book into the second to help the uninitiated catch up. Even so, read the trilogy in the proper order to get the most out of it.
I would recommend this book to more than just youths as it is a truly compelling read, with equal parts action and romance.
