The Hunger Game series really is a lanching oad for the strong leading lady in movies. One who is not a sex object or just a romantic interest. I am all for this, and think it is a great untapped demographic where the leading lady has to deal with situations on her own. Where the male lead is nit the main plot. (Not that I am anti-male. I am feminist, nont an exteme feminist).
The two next series I propose to be made to movies. The Uglies and (especially) Sabriel.
