Twenty-four are forced to enter. Only the winner survives.
In the ruins of a place once known as North America lies the nation of Panem, a shining Capitol surrounded by twelve outlying districts. Each year, the districts are forced by the Capitol to send one boy and one girl between the ages of twelve and eighteen to participate in the Hunger Games, a brutal and terrifying fight to the death – televised for all of Panem to see.
Survival is second nature for sixteen-year-old Katniss Everdeen, who struggles to feed her mother and younger sister by secretly hunting and gathering beyond the fences of District 12. When Katniss steps in to take the place of her sister in the Hunger Games, she knows it may be her death sentence. If she is to survive, she must weigh survival against humanity and life against love.
The Huger Games by Suzanne Collins is one of my all time favorite books! When I first picked this up I had no idea how good it was going to be I must have finished it in a day not wanting to put it down this book leaves you on the edge of your seat the whole time and it will make you laugh and cry all in the same paragraph Mrs. Collins does a great job of keeping you guessing on what will happen next and lays out what you think is just another love story. Overall this book is amazing and I recommend it to anybody!
