"The Hunger Games" read-alikes in the library!

"The Hunger Games" read-alikes in the library! | Library Update - March 2012 | Scoop.it

If you like "The Hunger Games," check out "Legend" by Marie Lu today!  Kami Garcia (who co-wrote the "Beautiful Creatures" trilogy!) calls it "a romantic thriller set in a post-apocalyptic world where nothing is what it seems--"Legend" is impossible to put down and even harder to forget."  Now that's a ringing endorsement!

 

See the dystopian fiction display in the library for more suggestions.
