Scholastic mentioned: “Suzanne Collins has done it again, bringing us back to the world of Panem in order to ask us important questions about our own world.

“Sunrise on the Reaping is a remarkable book, bringing new complexity, perspective, and revelations to a piece of the Hunger Games story that readers have longed to know more about.”

Collins herself added: “With Sunrise on the Reaping, I was inspired by David Hume’s idea of implicit submission and, in his words, ‘the easiness with which the many are governed by the few.’ The story also lent itself to a deeper dive into the use of propaganda and the power of those who control the narrative. The question ‘Real or not real?’ seems more pressing to me every day.”

All 4 Hunger Games books thus far have been tailored into films by Lionsgate. Most lately The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes was launched in November final yr. No doubt Sunrise on the Reaping will get green-lit sooner or later.
