Do you remember The Hunger Games? The first time you saw it? I do. I was washing dishes in my parents’ kitchen, while my dad and my little brother watched in the next room. It was that scene in the beginning. Katniss steps forward to take her sister’s place in the Hunger Games. She puts her life on the line to protect her little sis. I remember my mom turning and asking me: would I do that for my sister? Katniss doesn’t have time to decide. Love drives her to act. Harper from Beauty in Hiding isn’t like Katniss. Except in one way. Love drives her to act. She has finally decided to trust God, but she’s on the run. She’s not protecting herself, or her kids. It’s her elderly employer that she risks everything to protect.
