Yep. I’m not ashamed to admit it. I love Peeta Mellark.
With him, Suzanne Collins has created the ultimate good guy heartthrob… a welcome change to the theory that girls only like “bad boys”.
Though I’ve yet to see the movie, Josh Hutcherson‘s casting seems perfect – exactly how I envisioned him – adorable (which is totally fair to say without sounding all Mary Kay Letourneau right? Since the boy is all of nineteen years old!?).
I chatted with Jim’s teen cousin and learned that mostly every girl on the planet loves Peeta. So much so that she sadly found all the Peeta blankets sold out.
But what do you think?
