9781936294220: The Many Faces of Katniss Everdeen: Exploring the Heroine of the Hunger Games

Katniss is the heroine who's changed the world. Like Harry Potter, she's gotten kids and teens reading. And like Harry, she explodes across genres: She is a dystopian heroine, a warrior woman, a reality TV star, a rebellious adolescent. She's surrounded by the figures of Roman history, from Caesar and Cato to Cinna and Coriolanus Snow. She's also traveling the classic heroine's journey. As a child soldier, she faces trauma; as a growing teen, she battles through love triangles and the struggle to be good in a harsh world. This book explores all this and more, while taking a look at the series' symbolism, from food to storytelling, to show how Katniss becomes the greatest power of Panem, the girl on fire.

For all the essays and book reports kids write on The Hunger Games, for all the curious fans who want to know who "Cinna" and "Plutarch" were historically, for all the kids confused about the trilogy's ending, for all the fascinated teachers and scholars, this book will be an invaluable resource.

Valerie Estelle Frankel is the author of two books on the heroine's journey, along with books on the Harry Potter series. Her book exploring the popular series of books, The Mortal Instruments, is being published soon by Zossima Press (Myths and Motifs in The Instruments). Valerie lives (and writes!) in Sunnyvale, California.
