The hilarious instant New York Times bestseller, The Hunger Pains is a loving parody of the dystopian YA novel and film, The Hunger Games.

Winning means wealth, fame, and a life of therapy losing means death, but also fame! This is The Hunger Pains.

When Kantkiss Neverclean replaces her sister as a contestant on the Hunger Gamesβ€”the second-highest-rated reality TV show in Peaceland, behind Extreme Home Makeoverβ€”she has no idea what to expect. Having lived her entire life in the telemarketing district’s worst neighborhood, the Crack, Kantkiss feels unprepared to fight to the death while simultaneously winking and looking adorable for the cameras. But when her survival rests on choosing between the dreamy hunk from home, Carol Handsomestein, or the doughy klutz, Pita Malarkey, Kantkiss discovers that the toughest conflicts may not be found on the battlefield but in her own heart . . . which is unfortunately on a battlefield.

    I can believe it! That is a total rip off of the hunger games! That is stupid, renaming all of the care charecters doesn't make it your own! DO NOT BUY THIS!!!!!!!!! What? Do you think that Suzanne approves of this!!??!! There should be a zero star rating!

    I thought that the Hunger Games parody was an excellent book. All though the Hunger Games by Suzan Collins was a LOT better this was a fun read and I enjoyed seeing the book in a different perspective and I would recommend this book to people who like comedy/ parody stuff. 8)

    This book was so funny! Although it did make me almost throw up when they were talking about pita's dandruff. Effu Trinket is so funny and the ending takes on a weird twist- definitely not what I expected! Great book πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘
