    The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes (A Hunger Games Novel) by Suzanne Collins: Conversation Starters
    
    The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes is a spinoff and a prequel to Suzanne Collins' well-known trilogy, The Hunger Games. It talks about Coriolanus Snow, who is known as the president of Panem and the main antagonist in The Hunger Games trilogy. In this book, an eighteen-year-old Coriolanus Snow has been chosen to be a mentor to the tributes for the upcoming 10th Hunger Games. Mentoring a winning tribute is his goal to secure a scholarship to the University because his family has lost their wealth during the Dark Days. However, it seems that the odds were not in his favor as he was assigned to mentor a female tribute from District 12, which is considered as the lowest of the low.
