The starvation trials (or): Hunger Games Read-A-Likes

So the big news among all YA librarians is that The Hunger Games Movie came out on March 23rd.  This book series is wildly popular and the teens just can't get enough of it.  The movie is pretty good too, when it comes down to it. 

But what are you to do if you have read The Hunger Games, Catching Fire and Mockingjay?  Where will you go to get your quota of teens fighting to survive and calculated political maneuverings?  Where oh where can you turn to find a dystopian society ruled by an oligarchy?  The answer is here!  Wait, no, I mean I can show you where to go to find those types of stories, not that we live in a rule where a select few people secretly manipulate the actions of the masses…

  1. A dystopian novel I recently enjoyed was Pure, the first of a trilogy, by Julianna Baggott.
