The hilarious instant New York Times bestseller, The Hunger Pains is a loving parody of the dystopian YA novel and film, The Hunger Games.
Winning means wealth, fame, and a life of therapy losing means death, but also fame! This is The Hunger Pains.
When Kantkiss Neverclean replaces her sister as a contestant on the Hunger Games—the second-highest-rated reality TV show in Peaceland, behind Extreme Home Makeover—she has no idea what to expect. Having lived her entire life in the telemarketing district’s worst neighborhood, the Crack, Kantkiss feels unprepared to fight to the death while simultaneously winking and looking adorable for the cameras. But when her survival rests on choosing between the dreamy hunk from home, Carol Handsomestein, or the doughy klutz, Pita Malarkey, Kantkiss discovers that the toughest conflicts may not be found on the battlefield but in her own heart . . . which is unfortunately on a battlefield.
From the critics
AgeAdd Age Suitability
SanzuConnection thinks this title is suitable for between the ages of 11 and 85
Violence: I like the violence in the actual Hunger Games, but this was gross.
Sexual Content: She licks Pita around his face until sticking her tongue in his mouth for a first time kiss. And other times they kiss.
Coarse Language: Not recommended for readers under 12. There's some rude gestures and a few words that aren't really nice.
