Katniss Everdeen lives in District 12, the poorest district in Panem. Every year, one boy and girl from each of the 12 districts gets chosen to be in the Hunger Games- a public arena where children fight to the death until only one remains.

When Prim- Katniss’ younger sister- gets chosen, Katniss volunteers in her place. Now she is off on the ride of a lifetime with Peeta Mellark, the other tribute from District 12. When she gets placed in the arena, Katniss must fight for her life, and Peeta’s.

Some parts of this book are intense and violent, so I would not recommend it for anyone under 10. Other parts are romantic and exciting.
If you do decide to read this book, I think that you will really like it. I hope that my review helped you!
