  •  The Hunger Games books had some real value (5+ / 0-)

    Specifically in their treatment of PTSD, which the main character develops slowly but surely over the course of the second and third books.  The authors does a good job showing what effect PTSD has on her relationships to friends and family and her ability to function.  Most importantly, Katniss does not 'magically' conquer the condition, but rather learns to manage and live with it.
