Contemporary young adult fiction often has a stigma attached to it – one that associates YA novels with shallow portrayals of teenagers grasping for their identity amongst cruel high school cliques and dating dilemmas. I write about war. For adolescents. By establishing her own validity as a female soldier despite this exclusivity, and surviving the battle arena, Katniss enters into the collective of traumatized and un-idealized veterans who, upon their return from war, struggle to reconcile their pre-war and post-war selves.

For Katniss, this bifurcation manifests itself through the love triangle trope: she balances two love interests, who represent two incompatible spheres – the domestic, in Gale, and the warfront, in Peeta.

Katniss and Gale had a lot of history before Peeta ever really came into It’s also got one of the best love triangles in YA fiction as a secondary plot, While Peeta fell for the girl who sang like a bird on the first day of school.

Following graduate school, Collins moved into television, writing for Starring Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss, Josh Hutcherson as Peeta.

Kaila Trowbridge December 12, These books were adapted into widely-beloved films. The final book, Mockingjay, was split into two movies, Part 1 and Part 2. It seems silly to split the film into two parts because Mockingjay is a single novel. The film starts with Katniss Everdeen, played by Jennifer Lawrence, in the previously unknown District She is there with her mother, sister and good friend Gale. President Snow was using them as leverage against the upcoming rebellion.

A lot of the movie focuses on Katniss and the rebels of District 13 creating propaganda to get the other Districts involved in the rebellion. Katniss goes to other districts to see the kind of lives they are living, and it fuels the fire within her when she sees the damage the Capitol had already done. While they are streaming the propaganda, Peeta is doing interviews with Caesar Flickerman.

As he has more interviews, Katniss notices that he is changing as a person, and demands that he, and the other hostages, are rescued as soon as possible. A group of volunteers from District 13 go on an action-packed mission to save the hostages. The film is a roller coaster.

The Hunger Games series is easily one of the best YA trilogies ever written, providing readers with political intrigue, well-developed characters and a thoughtful, highly-flawed yet moving heroine. It’s also got one of the best love triangles in YA fiction as a secondary plot, where the heroine is torn between the familiar best friend who has helped her support her family over the years and the boy with the bread, who initially provided food for her family and gave her hope.

Author Suzanne Collins gave readers plenty of reasons why Katniss and Peeta also work well together, and they do develop a chemistry together that feels stronger than any feelings between Katniss and Gale. Peeta loves Katniss and would do anything for her, and in the post-revolutionary world she should be able to choose whom her heart wants rather than the most practical suitor.

While her feelings seem to point toward Peeta, there’s no denying that she seems jealous over Gale kissing someone else in District 2, or that they made a better fighting and hunting team than she and Peeta did. One could argue that a possible romance between Gale Hawthorne and Katniss Everdeen was doomed from the start simply due to the pair forging their relationship out of survival.

They both needed to support their families with their hunting and trapping skills and they relied upon one another to bring in enough game and foraged plants to provide for their houses. Even so, Gale obviously chose to stick with Katniss out of love, given that he’d already been trapping before she came along and first saw her as competition for food rather than an ally.

Many young women in District 12 also sought Gale’s favor, so it was more Katniss’s desperation and Gale’s infatuation that led to their hunting partnership and friendship. Of all of the youth in the Hunger Games series, Gale Hawthorne best epitomizes what the rebellion means. He’s a fit, handsome young man who has struggled to support his family to the point of entering his name for the Reaping 42 times. He’s an obvious choice as a rebellious symbol, and he’s much more willing to fight than Katniss Everdeen.

Plutarch Heavensbee knows that the people wouldn’t follow Gale into battle as ardently as they would a lovesick year-old girl who not only survived the Hunger Games but sacrificed herself to save her little sister as well as her boyfriend.
