Reading is encouraged and loved by students attending Mapleton Jr. High School. Many of those students have been reading one series and one only, the Hunger Games series of course. Students are reading it in anticipation of the Hunger Games movie, which is coming out on March 23, 2012. Everyone that is reading the book has become a huge fan. The first book is called the Hunger Games, the second, Catching Fire, and the third book is How to Kill a Mocking Jay. They are all good, but the first one is especially popular. The students at Mapleton Junior High School have really enjoyed reading the series this year and are interested to see how the movie will be. MJHS student Jen Baker said, “The book will always be better than the movie because you picture the characters differently in your mind, plus they sometimes just “forget” to put things in the movie or even add things that aren’t in the book”. But don’t worry, the Hunger Games movie is expected to be awesome. For now MJHS students will keep reading the book and looking forward to March 23. After that, if the movie is good, hopefully they’ll make the second book into a movie also. Keep on reading MJHS, because the Hunger Games excitement is really fun!
