Recommended for: The Hunger Games fans

Cheesy and hilarious, this story incorporates most of the plot points of "The Hunger Games" and a few of the ones from other books in the trilogy with blatant storyline commentary from the protagonist. It reminds me of the lighthearted spoof movies by the Wayans Bros., like "Scary Movie", "Epic Movie", "Date Movie", etc.

Yes, many people think those movies are more stupid than funny, but I have to tell you that I don't laugh out loud in real life from reading books that often, considering one of my favorite genres is dystopian youth fiction. I found myself guffawing several times while reading this.
