Episode 6 The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins The Hunger Game is a middle grade novel set in a dystopian future where children called tributes are forced to take part in the Hunger Games where they battle to the death as a punishment for their various districts rebelling against the capital. These districts represent various areas of North America and their various industries which are intentionally starved by the Capital. Katniss, our main character, tries desperately to survive while holding on to her humanity. As parents we debated if the Hunger Games was appropriate for Alora based on both violence and romantic content. We decided to allow it but please do you own research as some of the content is graphic.
