Katniss experienced rivalry during the games, passion for her sister, civility through means of becoming a woman through the eyes of the Capitol, and failure to follow the rules given to her.
She also experienced innovation by being chosen to play in the games. The Hunger Games contains an extremely competitive feel due to the fact that the book is based on a game.
The Hunger Games, a national bestseller, is available through Indiana Humanities Novel Conversations lending library. Request a set (for free!) for your book club today.
