The Hunger Games

The Author

Suzanne Collins

Now a major motion picture!

District 12, the poor coal mining district, is home to the main character, Katniss Everdeen. Katniss is a 16 year old girl who is forced to take care of her younger sister Prim and her depressed mother after losing her father a few years back. She hunts with her childhood friend Gale in order to make a living, as she is very skilled with a bow.

The story takes place in a nation called Panem, which is split into twelve districts and a Capitol. Long ago, the districts went against the Capitol and were defeated. As punishment, each district must now participate in a annual televised event known as the Hunger Games. Each district will offer up one male and one female tribute, between the ages of 12 and 18, to fight to the death in a special Capitol arena. There will be only one lone victor.

The male and female tributes are reaped, and to Katniss's horror Prim is selected as the female tribute. Shocking everyone, Katniss steps in and volunteers as tribute in place of her sister. She, and male tribute Peeta Mellark, now have to fight all the other tributes in each district, until one person is left alive.

The book everyone is talking about!

There can only be one victor, so who will it be?
