Darby Andrews, a Moffat County High School junior, holds a copy of Suzanne Collins’ “The Hunger Games” in the high school library. When Andrews, 17, learned the school selected the book for its inaugural “One Book, One MCHS” reading program, she was the first to sign up. “I got a bunch of my friends to sign up so we can talk about (the book) after we’ve read it,” she said.

Robin Weible knew “The Hunger Games” was popular. She heard about the first book in Suzanne Collins’ best-selling series from students at Craig Middle School and Moffat County High School. Finally, Weible, MCHS library technician, decided to see for herself what all the excitement was about. She was sucked into the novel, which follows Katniss Everdeen, a 16-year-old girl living in a post-apocalyptic future, who must compete against other young teens in a government-mandated fight to the death.
