This book sort of sounds like The Hunger Games. Is it anything like The Hunger Games series?

Cassie Yes and no. Yes, because the over-arching situation is survival. No, because Hatchet is realistic fiction. The things in the story *could* happen, even if they are far-fetched. The Hunger Games is straight up sci-fi. Additionally, Hunger Games has political and social commentary, while Hatchet really is just about one boy vs. nature.

Both stories are excellent reads, with tension throughout, but don't expect the same sort of conflict from Hatchet.
