Suzanne Collins's new book

I was bitterly disappointed by the final book in Suzanne Collins's Underland Chronicles (I mean, it's one thing to have an ambiguous ending, but Gregor and the Code of Claw didn't even make sense. It's a $35 bus ride from Virginia to New York--why was everybody convinced they'd never see one another again?), but that doesn't mean I'm not excited about her future books. Here's the publisher's description of her upcoming novel Hunger Games:

"Katniss is a 16-year-old girl living with her mother and younger sister in the poorest district of Panem, the remains of what used be the United States. Long ago the districts waged war on the Capitol and were defeated. As part of the surrender terms, each district agreed to send one boy and one girl to appear in an annual televised event called, "The Hunger Games." The terrain, rules, and level of audience participation may change but one thing is constant: kill or be killed. When Kat's sister is chosen by lottery, Kat steps up to go in her place."
I'd be even happier if she wrote a sixth Underland book, but I suppose this is better than nothing. Hunger Games is due out in October.
