Pro

Well, this is a book with not many explicit details. Its something age appropriate for tweens and teens. I think the hunger games is a book that can teach the kids.
Wylted

Con

Go ahead please explain why a book about children hunting each other down and murdering each other is an appropriate book for kids.

I don't think it matters if I negate his argument if mine is more compelling, but thanks for voting anyway.

Reasons for voting decision: I mean, PRO basically forfeited, so.... Neither side provided any arguments, so I'll just give CON the conduct point.
