APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
A generation before Katniss Everdeen won the Hunger Games (and our hearts) with her bravery and sacrifice, a different underdog prepared to face the reaping. We all know Coriolanus Snow as the tyrannical president of Panem. But at 18, he was the heir of a formerly great family and a laughing stock. At first, an assignment to mentor a destitute girl from District 12 seems like the ultimate demotion for Coriolanus, but working with the strangely charismatic Lucy Gray presents him with an opportunity to reclaim his family’s ruling status—if he can navigate the web of old alliances, new money, and shifting loyalties. We were floored by Suzanne Collins’ captivating prequel, which proves that even the most nefarious villain is still the hero of their own story—and isn’t 100 percent terrible. The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes is just as exhilarating as the other books in the Hunger Games series.
