My situation is a bit unique in that I will have the same students for multiple years – so I won’t be able to teach using The Hunger Games for another 4 years or so. Because of this, I find myself wondering: What about this novel drew my students in so completely? Was it the theme? The characters? The plot?
With that in mind, I’ve started searching for novels that seems to tap into the same types of feelings and issues, novels that have interesting plots and well-developed characters, that I might be able to introduce my students to next year.
Here are some of the most promising book recommendations for The Hunger Games fans in your classroom… and may the odds be ever in your favor (that they like them).
