Accelerated adolescence: Analysis based on The Hunger Games

The aim of the essay is to show the process of accelerated adolescence based on Suzanne Collins’ The Hunger Games, its face and possible consequences for the child and parents. Drawing the plot of the trilogy, the author of the novel describes the struggles and challenges the main character had to face, which were unnaturally high when looking at her age. The pressure to take on the role of the family’s main breadwinner strongly influenced her later decisions, made in the face of really difficult choices she should not have to make at such a young age. However, the nature of the society in which she grew up and the events that made up one story and not another forced her to take certain steps, through which she has to grow up much faster in conditions where the partnership of children and adults is an oxymoron. The author then reflects on the real world, noting not only the positive sides, but also certain problems (some of them coinciding with those of the trilogy) and traumas with which we grow up, not even realizing how strongly they can affect later adult life.
