From Amazon: Against all odds, Katniss Everdeen has won the annual Hunger Games with fellow district tribute Peeta Mellark. But it was a victory won by defiance of the Capitol and their harsh rules. Katniss and Peeta should be happy. After all, they have just won for themselves and their families a life of safety and plenty. But there are rumors of rebellion among the subjects, and Katniss and Peeta, to their horror, are the faces of that rebellion. The Capitol is angry. The Capitol wants revenge.

If you've read 2008's The Hunger Games, then this book will need no explanation. And if you haven't, what are you waiting for?!

I cannot WAIT for this book. At the TLA conference in Houston last week, Scholastic had a cover of this book wrapped around a different book and they finally had to put a post-it note on it saying "This is not a copy of Catching Fire" because EVERYONE was trying to make off it with or begging to buy it.

Does anyone know the UK release date or cover? I'll probably get the US version off Amazon, but I like the UK HG cover so much more...
