The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes by Suzanne Collins

This novel is set in the world of Panem sixty-four years before the events of The Hunger Games.


It is the morning of the reaping of the Tenth Hunger Games. Eighteen-year-old Coriolanus Snow is preparing for his one shot at glory as a mentor in the Games. The once-mighty house of Snow has fallen on hard times, its fate hanging on the slender chance that Coriolanus will be able to outcharm, outwit, and outmaneuver his fellow students to mentor the winning tribute.
