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.

    "A good parody"

    The Hunger Pains is a spot on parody. It retells the story of the hunger games pointing out some of the more gapping plot holes and some of the sillier plot points. The story is well put together and the characters of humorous. I would recommend reading the hunger games first as it helps you understand some of the jokes.
    Overall a good parody.
