This month, The Hunger Games
fans of all ages will finally have the chance to see their favorite
characters on the silver screen. To many, this obsession with these characters began four years ago with the release of the book. Others have just discovered the trilogy when news of the movie was released. I was one of those individuals who was introduced to the world of The Hunger Games
