    DescriptionGo deeper into the home of the Hunger Games with the creator of the best-known fan map of Panem * What does Panem look like? * How does Panem define race? * How do Panem's districts reflect the major themes of the trilogy? * What allusions to our world are found in Panem names like Finnick, Johanna, Beetee, Cinna, Everdeen, and Mellark? The Panem Companion gives fresh insight into Suzanne Collins' trilogy by looking at the world of the Hunger Games and the forces that kept its citizens divided since the First Rebellion. With a blend of academic insight and true fan passion, V. Arrow explores how Panem could have evolved from the America we know today and uses textual clues to piece together Panem's beliefs about class, ethnicity, culture, gender, sexuality, and more. Includes an extensive name lexicon and color-illustrated unofficial map

    Author Information
    V. Arrow graduated from Knox College in 2008 with degrees in history and creative writing, specializing in 20th-century pop culture and young adult lit. Under another name, she has previously published at Pop Matters, The One Love, Tommy2.net, and The Hollywood Reporter. Arrow has read a book a day for the last 22 years, and grew up to the age of 12 without realizing that the Muppets weren't living creatures. She believes that pop culture affects, reflects, and informs all aspects of daily life in Western culture and that it is perhaps the most crucial form of media expression to analyze and discuss.
    Review quote
    "We really enjoyed The Panem Companion. It's unapologetically smart and refuses to trivialize the series or its fandom ... if you're going to read [a companion book], we suggest you go for this one. --Victor's Village, a Hunger Games blog "An in-depth look into Panem and its districts, this book will help you understand why Panem is the way it is, and how it led to a rebellion ... Overall, an exceptional companion book to the Hunger Games that every fan should read." --HG Girl on Fire, a Hunger Games fansite "If other companions are Hunger Games 101, this is the grad school class." --Leah Wilson, editor of The Girl Who Was on Fire
