Occupation: Writer
Previous TIME 100 Appearances: 0

Move over, Stephenie Meyer. Collins' Hunger Games series, about a future dystopia in which teenagers compete in an annual gladiatorial fight to the death, is the new de rigueur reading for young adults. What her books lack in sexy vampires they make up for in raw power, and a movie of the first one is in the works.
