Brenna, Joe and special guest Alex Heeney are ready to volunteer as tribute as we dive into the 74th annual Hunger Games, courtesy of Suzanne Collins and filmmaker Gary Ross.

The trio have plenty of thoughts on the value of Peeta to the text, how the film sets up future franchise instalments for failure, why Collins is such a skilled world-builder and the retroactive damage of Mockingjay on perspectives of the first book/film.

In Homework: Joe discusses YA Forecast pick Destroy All Monsters by Jeff Jackson, Brenna dips her toe into Buffy water with Kiersten White's Slayer and Alex pitches 1980's coming of age film, Gregory’s Girl.
