Paul Gallagher is joined by Holyrood High School librarian Rachel McCabe and three teenage school pupils Joanne, Lewis and Roselinta to review one of the biggest books of the moment, The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins. They begin by asking why the book has been so popular, and dive into a wide-ranging discussion of the book, its themes and characters and other big teenage fiction.

Following this Paul and Rachel turn to a review of new Scottish author Luke Williams' debut novel The Echo Chamber, which was recently published in paperback after receiving glowing praise on initial publication last year.
