With the spring release of The Hunger Games, demand for the trilogy and its read-alikes will be high. To find similar dystopian reads in NoveList or Novelist K-8, search Hunger Games.

The first item in your result list is the first book in the Hunger Games Trilogy and includes links to Title Read-alikes, Author Read-alikes, and Series Read-alikes. If you click on the title and move into the full record, you will see a list of books on the right and below that, an option called Search for More.

The latest Kids & Books newsletter from Novelist provides strategies for locating Read-Alike content and a section called Silver Screen: From Book to Big Screen.
