A Hero's Journey The Hunger Games the CALL the RETURN : invites hero into adventure and offers an opportunity to face the unknown and gain value

= Reaping day - Katniss volunteers in her sister's place to be one of the twenty-four tributes in the 74th Hunger Games- her ultimate goal: win the Games and return home : challenges/temptations that hero must overcome which gradually get harder- passing tests= transformation- challenges hit at hero's personal weaknesses the CHALLENGES : a moment of death and rebirth for the hero when he/she overcomes abyss- old part dies= new part born the TRANSFORMATION : a sudden change in the way the hero views life- makes him/her a different, transformed person the REVELATION = Katniss and Peeta return home to Distict 12, and now
must continue their lives as victors- citizens are ecstatic for
them to return- Will life go on as before or will it change
dramatically? the THRESHOLD :"jumping off point" for adventure- interface between known and unknown world
