•••Summary(No Spoilers) - A sixteen year old girl named Katniss Everdeen lives in the future of North America, Panem. Panem consists of the "shining Capitol" surrounded by twelve outlying Districts. Each District has a specific purpose. District One creates luxury items for the Capitol, District Seven produces lumber, and District Twelve, where Katniss lives, mines coal.
Each year, the Capitol forces each district to offer up one man and woman between the ages of twelve and eighteen to fight in The Hunger Games, in an arena filled with twenty three people who wish to survive,. The Hunger Games is punishment for the Uprising of the districts during the Dark Days, when the districts rebelled against the Capitol, only to be forced back in line. Twelve districts conquered, the thirteenth, obliterated.
Katniss lives with her mother and younger sister, Prim. The day of the yearly Reaping comes, where Tributes are picked at random to fight in The Hunger Games. When her sister's name is chosen, Katniss volunteers to take her place.
What will happen? Will she be able to outlive the other twenty three Tributes, including the boy, Peeta Mellark, from her district?
