Could you survive a world without food? Can you imagine never being hungry again? That’s exactly the norm in
In Thalia Apple’s life, food has completely vanished from anywhere and
everywhere. It’s no longer an option for anyone on the planet. New technology
has been invented called inocs, a medication people now take to keep themselves
from ever being hungry. Food isn’t necessary, and that’s how mostly everyone
wants it to stay—or at least that’s what it seems like to Thalia.
Thalia eventually meets a young boy who doesn’t seem to feel the same as
the rest of the population. Unlike Thalia’s parents, he still believes in the power
of food and doesn’t think that inocs are the most amazing invention to ever hit
mankind. He is part of a movement that is on the DL, so he and Thalia have to
start doing a lot of hiding and sneaking around. Obviously, Thalia can’t let
her parents find out that she’s trying to bring food back into everyone’s life.
Not only are Thalia and her new peers basically trying to cause a
revolution, she begins to realize that hunger might arise again. They start to
feel the grumbling in their stomachs and think that maybe the inocs won’t work
Will Thalia triumph, or will her parents and the inocs be in power
forever? Make sure to pick up Hungry when
