Review
This is my favorite book! it is about a girl, in the ruins of north america is a country called panem, who's sister is chosen for the hunger games. The Hunger Games is a battle to the death against all 12 districts. She volunteers for his sister and wins, doing so she starts a rebellion against the capitol. I highly recommend this book to ANYONE. The book is way better than the movie.  View at phoenixpubliclibrary.org

From the very first chapter of this book I was hooked. I was pulled into their lives and kept wanting to know more and more. I was unable to put it down until i got to the very last page!  View at phoenixpubliclibrary.org

Title
Goliath
Author
Scott Westerfield
Review
The epic conclusion to the Leviathan trilogy, Goliath is pretty fantastic. Right when Alek, lost heir to the Austria-Hungary throne, finds out that his good friend Dylan is a girl (Deryn) the ship is caught up in the scheme of the insane scientist Nikola Tesla, whose machines have already tried destroying the Leviathan twice before. Now, he's on the side of the Darwinists, guiding the Leviathan to a secret weapon on the shores of America called (surprise) Goliath.

Westerfield continues his world even more, getting more of the major continents onto his map of beasties and steam walkers. We go to Japan, America, Mexico... all of which are pretty neat. Japan is a wonderful blend of mechanical machines and Darwinist beasties, while America is divided into mechanical walkers and the Darwin animals.

Ultimately, Goliath is a fantastic book. The downside is that it's finished. Let's hope that Westerfield makes another series about World War II, eh? With Alek and Deryn and Bovril? Please?  View at phoenixpubliclibrary.org
