Hunger Pains starts at Kantkiss’s house, in District Twelve. She does a lot of illegal things, like hunting in the woods and selling the animals she hunts in the wood for money. Her father died when she was really young, so she has to take charge of her sister and mom. When she goes to Supper Fun Day, and her sister gets picked she has to take charge. So she and Pita have to pretend to be love birds. The genre of the novel is Parody because it makes fun of everyday and even exaggerates cruelness. If you like The Hunger Games and you like humor you will love this book. I would give this book a five star rating because it is so funny, and the author makes all the puzzle pieces fit together.
