V-Violence (Anti) and Characters From YA Books
It is important to stand up and fight against youth violence. Stop the violence by speaking up, knowing consequences, telling the truth, leading by example, thinking about your future, and thinking before you act.
Here are some characters from YA books who fight against violence...
Katniss from the Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins is forced to fight in a violent game set up by the capital. Ironically the capital forces it's districts to compete is such a violent game as a punishment for their violence and rebellion against the capital years before. The trilogy is about Katniss' journey to standing up to the violence of the capital.
Don't Forget about the power of three!!!
