Winning means wealth, fame, and a life of therapy losing means death, but also fame This is "The Hunger Pains."
When Kantkiss Neverclean replaces her sister as a contestant on the "Hunger Games"--the second-highest-rated reality TV show in Peaceland, behind "Extreme Home Makeover"--she has no idea what to expect. Having lived her entire life in the telemarketing district's worst neighborhood, the Crack, Kantkiss feels unprepared to fight to the death while simultaneously winking and looking adorable for the cameras. But when her survival rests on choosing between the dreamy hunk from home, Carol Handsomestein, or the doughy klutz, Pita Malarkey, Kantkiss discovers that the toughest conflicts may not be found on the battlefield but in her own heart . . . which is unfortunately on a battlefield.
