4 Tactics to Your Perfect Last line #YA Some time ago, I wrote a post examining howYA fantasy/dystopian novels opened, you can find it here. Well, the other day, I watched the final instalment of the Mockingjay from the Hunger Games trilogy. Despite its brutality,therewas one particular line right at the end of the film that piqued my interest. So I decided to flip that post on its head and look at YA endings.

Katniss climbed into bed with Peeta, gave him a hug and he leant in to say:

โ€œYou love me, real or not real?โ€ and Katniss said, โ€œReal.โ€

Time to admit a dirty secret I have been harbouring for a while now โ€“ yes, Iโ€™m ashamed! I havenโ€™t read the Hunger Games. I know. I know. Iโ€™m a YA Fantasy/Dystopian writer, how could I NOT have read the Hunger Gamesโ€ฆ? It just sort of happened. Lets not talk about it. Iโ€™ll fix itโ€ฆSoon.
