The Many Faces of Katniss Everdeen: Exploring the Heroine of The Hunger Games by Valerie Estelle Frankel.
Frankel, an award-winning author of the Henry Potty children's series and several books on pop culture, explores Katniss Everdeen in this new book for fans of the series and educators looking to discuss The Hunger Games in the classroom.
Having enjoyed Frankel's book, Katniss the Cattail, I eagerly agreed to read The Many Faces of Katniss Everdeen. Exploring Katniss in her numerous roles, be it as reality star, warrior woman, protector of children, teen solider, or more, Frankel delves deep into the multiple identities that have drawn readers to this heroine who changed the world. Just as much a social commentary as it is a look into history and an investigation into a popular character, The Many Faces of Katniss Everdeen fascinates you with the vast amount of information Frankel provides and the depths that she is unafraid to go.
Simply put, once I opened this book, I never wanted to put it down. With Catching Fire due out in theaters on Friday, now would be the perfect time to dive into The Many Faces of Katniss Everdeen. I look forward to more books from this amazing author.
