I was only fourteen years old when I first read The Hunger Games. I had recently discovered a love for young adult fiction. And at that time, YA dystopias were all the rage. So of course I devoured as many as I could get my hands on: the Divergent series, The Maze Runner books...and The Hunger Games trilogy. Though I loved Divergent, and there's a special place . . .
