One of my favorite titles of last year was The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins. Catching Fire, the sequel is on its way to school as I write this. I have already had students ask to be put on hold for the sequel.
Anyway, there have been reviews in Time and EW of both books. Both publications seem to focus on the violence to children. This is a story about characters, and the violence is to give the characters rationale for their actions.
