I noticed the thread about kids after SHTF but I did not want to take that thread down a bunny trail. So, I'm starting this thread about The Hunger Games, which is a pretty interesting series of fictional novels about children in a post-apocalyptic world. Hollywood has filmed the first novel and it will be out in 2012. This series is very popular with young readers. If you are looking for an opportunity to get a kid or a group of kids into a consideration of life after SHTF, this is an amazing windfall opportunity for you. Introduce a young reader to this series and watch their interest in SHTF events grow! My wife and I have both read the whole series. We thoroughly enjoyed them. I won't ruin your reading enjoyment by spilling the plot here. Get the books and enjoy them. Let me know how you and your younger readers get along on SHTF discussions following their Hunger Games exposure.
