Reader's Advisory: The Hunger Games

If you liked...

The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins

The Giver by Lois Lowry

A classic dystopian tale for young readers. I first read this book in the 6th grade and the story of Jonas was deep, provocative, and managed to stay with me for years. In this book, the world is perfect. Everything is predestined to maintain the control and no one can remember life before the change; no one except, The Giver. The Giver holds the memories of true life and now Jonas must fight to receive the truth and break away. Jonas is unsuspecting of the trials life dumps on him and with the strength we all find in Katniss, he steps up to the challenge.

The Handmaid's Tale by Margaret Atwood

People of all ages enjoy The Hunger Games. For older fans of The Hunger Games, I recommend this dystopic story of Offred. A popular tale from Margaret Atwood, this story shares the life of Offred in a world of religious dominance and harsh realities that have plausible repercussions. Do you fight for freedom when you remember your life before? Do you bend or do you break?
