The Hunger Games

Artist: Yelena Brit

Banned/Challenged Book: The Hunger Games

Reason for Banning: Violence, sexually explicit, and unsuitable for its age group

Excerpt from Artist’s Statement: The Hunger Games is about survival of the fittest and how one person realizes what it means to be on your own. During parts of the book Katniss Everdeen volunteers to represent her district. I have chosen the green color because of the natural setting of the games.
