Transcript of Chunk Paragraph

The Final Paragraph
In The Hunger Games, by Suzanne Collins, Katniss Everdeen is a selfless character.
For example, when Primrose, Katniss' sister, is called to take part in the Hunger Games, Katniss yells, "'I volunteer!' ...'I volunteer as tribute!'" (22)
.

This shows that Katniss is willing to give her own life to protect someone she cares about; Katniss vaules her sister Primrose's life more than her own.
This is also important because Primrose is not capable of taking care of herself; Katniss has always been the one to take care of her little sister, and there would be no way Primrose would be able to become the killer she would need to be in order to survive the games.
As a result, Katniss is forced to fight even harder for her life in the Hunger Games in order to ensure her survival so she can continue to care for her little sister.
