Science Fiction

The Hunger GamesBy: Suzanne Collins

After the destruction of North America, a new nation of Panem is built. There are 13 poor districts surrounding the wealthy Capitol. The 13th district was destroyed by the Capitol and now only 12 remain. Every year one boy and girl, ages 12 to 18, from each district are selected to participate in the Hunger Games. The Hunger Games is an event in which the "tributes" from each district fight to the death until only one individual remains and is claimed the winner. This event is controlled by the Capitol and televised live for everyone to see.

"May the odds be ever in your favor."

Main CharactersKatniss Everdeen: 16 year old girl from District 12 who volunteers as tribute for the 74th Hunger Games in place of her younger sister Primrose.Peeta Mellark: 16 year old boy from District 12who is chosen as tribute for the 74th Hunger Games.

ThemeThere are many themes within this story; however the main theme is the inequality between rich and poor.Wealth is heavily concentrated of those who live in the Capitol. Those who live in the districts barely even have enough to eat. Even though the theory of the reaping for tributes is random and anyone can be picked,in reality the poor are much more likely to be chosen.
