Be the first to respond


'The Hunger Games' novel and trilogy have become a crossover hit in the publishing industry with adult readers enjoying this young adult novel as much as teens and tweens. What did you like about 'The Hunger Games' - Katniss Everdeen, the strong heroine of the series? the way stereotypes were turned upside-down with the girl saving the boy? how media and reality shows were revealed as shallow and superficial? the inclusion of girls as equal players in a story of warfare and violence? Why should other girls and women read these books?
