5 to 1

Written by Holly Bodger

The title 5 to 1 refers to a future in which there are five boys to every one girl. This book explores how a country in this situation might deal with it, and what it means for the life of a boy or girl during this time. Written in narrative poetry from the perspective of a female character, and prose from the point-of-view of a male character, this book is easy to read, but leaves the reader asking some very critical questions. It is reminiscent of the Hunger Games series.
