Top five teen fantasy series

At the Christian Science Monitor, Megan Wasson compiles a list of "five fantasy series geared towards teens that adults will love too."

One title on the list:
The "Hunger Games" trilogy, by Suzanne Collins

In this wildly successful fantasy trilogy, an organization called "The Capitol" controls a post-apocalyptic North America, now called Panem. As punishment for a past rebellion, each year two teens from each of the 12 districts ruled by The Capitol must compete in a televised contest. The 24 "tributes" are released in a large arena and forced to kill each other until one is left standing. Katniss, a girl from District 12, steps in to compete in place of her younger sister, sparking a chain of events that will shape the future of Panem.
