    Why this is under hunger games.

    This is under hunger games because it talks about a book someone else wrote about the hunger games.

    WHAT THE HECK?

    This seems pretty boring. Plus it sounds boring so I reccomend not to get it even though it's free. I also don't knkw why it is listed under hunger games because it is notying about hunger games! So if you are looking for a hunger games book Ithink no one really recommends it for hungergames but if you want to try it then go ahead I don't care! :)
