Abstract [en]

This essay discusses The Hunger Games and Winter’s Bone as feminist novels which contain main characters portrayed as superkids. Initially, gender studies and a feminist approach are presented as a background to discussing the novels from a feministic perspective. A discussion about the phenomenon of superkids is also presented in order to analyse the chosen novels against that theme. The conclusion reached is that both novels include a main character who meets the definition of a superkid. Both books also show clear signs of feminism. Finally, a discussion about why these books are excellent to use in school is raised.
