YA Books That May or May Not Be YA

The Hunger Games series by Suzanne Collins

In the ruins of a future North America, a young girl is picked to leave her impoverished district and travel to the decadent Capitol for a battle to the death in the savage Hunger Games. But for Katniss Everdeen, winning the Games only puts her deeper in danger as the strict social order of Panem begins to unravel.

Kids fighting to the death? A girl standing up against the status quo, defying The Man? Come on, folks, that screams shadows of 1984. We won’t limit Collins’ spectacular series to just the YA audience.
