The Hunger Games
(Paperback)
Suzanne Collins
The idea of putting children in an enclosed space and having them fight for survival has long been a familiar trope in human entertainment, featured in works from Lord of the Flies to the movie Battle Royale. Suzanne Collins' series The Hunger Games subverts the format by promoting this juvenile blood-fest from a fringe pursuit, to an annual ritual central to the society in which it is held. Being the most recent work on this list, The Hunger Games embodies particularly modern concerns: the rise of reality television, the lust for fame, and the necessity for humans to be heavily armed when embarking on camping trips.

Mortal Engines
(Paperback)
Philip Reeve
Perhaps weirdly for someone who writes YA, I don’t actually read many YA or children’s novels – but I made an exception for Philip Reeve’s quartet of novels, of which this is the first. And I’m so glad I did. It’s a fantastic adventure story, set in a totally believable far future world, which allows Reeve to make big statements about evolution, sociology, technology and anthropology, but which he never lets interfere with the story – they’re there if you want to see them. It’s clever, thrilling, and incredibly moving, and the rest of the series completely live up to the high standards set by Mortal Engines.
