hungerIn a post-apocalyptic place once known as North America, the land has been divided into 12 districts which surround the glittering, powerful capital city of Panem which rises at the center. In order to keep the citizens subjugated, each district must select two young people each year to participate in the televised Hunger Games. It is a fight to the death, and all are forced to watch.

Katniss is thrust into the competition when – against all odds – her younger sister’s name is selected in the lottery and Katniss volunteers to take her place. She must use all her talents as an archer and hunter to stay alive.
