This book is the first in a trilogy, it’s about a girl named Katniss Everdeen. The book takes place in the future USA called Panem. Panem is split into 13 parts, 12 are districts and the last is the capital. There were 14 until the capital bombed district 13. Katniss lives in district 12. There is this annual lottery-type drawing only the prize, or more like price, isn’t so good. Katniss’s sister, Primrose Everdeen, is the girl chosen for this and Katniss knows if she lets Prim go in, she won’t come out alive. Katniss ends up volunteering and is paired up with bread boy, Peeta Mellark, when they go into the arena. District 12 is the poorest of the districts and with only one victor, or winner of the games, their chances aren’t so good. There are 24 people who go in and only one goes out, will that person be Katniss or will she die trying to get back to her family alive? Read this action-packed must-read to find out.
