Hunger Games T There's 12 districts now, but there was once a 13th district.When the districts revolted against the "capitol,"it was destroyed.To punish the districts,every year,there is a hunger games. In the hunger games, one boy and one girl is sent from each district. They are put in an arena, where they must kill each other. Only 1 person can survive the arena. When Prim Everdeen is selected during the reaping, her sister, Katniss, quickly volunteers to take her place as the girl tribute. She is saddened to see that Peeta, a boy who had given her burnt bread while her family was on the brink of starvation.
Katniss and Peeta's mentor, Haymitch,devises a strategy to help win the Hunger Games. They will pretend to be in love. This strategy actually ends up helping them win sponsors. Sponsers pay for "gifts" to be given to the tributes at specific times during the games.
The arena turns out to be half wooded area, and half field. Katniss runs into the woods. Later, she overhears Peeta with the "career pack," a group of tributes that come from districts that train for the games. After a confrontation with the career pack, Katniss makes an alliance with Rue, a 12 year old tribute from district 10. Rue and Katniss team up to blow up the career tribute's food supply. Though Katniss survives this, Rue is killed while trying to set off the second distraction. Katniss avenges her, and makes her first intentional kill. Eventually, she rejoins Peeta, when the gamekeeper, Seneca Crane, announces that a pair from a district can survive and win. Soon, everyone is dead, except Foxface, Cato, Peeta, and Katniss. Peeta accidently collects nightlock, a poisened berry, that Foxface steals and eat, killing her. Katniss and Cato face off, but a mutant pack of dogs in the form of the dead tributes, attacks, killing Cato. Suddenly, Seneca Crane announces that only one can live. Because they don't want to kill each other, the each take some nightlock, but before they can spit it out, Crane changes his mind and tells them they can both win again. Peeta finds out Katniss was faking being in love iwth him. Crane is executed for his choice. About the Author The Hunger Games was written by Suzanne Collins. Born in 1957, she now has two children and two adopted cats.
She lives in Connecticut with her husband.
She earned a MFA in Dramatic writing from New York University. I recommand this book for all ages. It's exciting, action-packed, and will leave you wishing you could immediately read the sequel. BUY THIS BOOK!!! Characters: is the sixteen year old girl tribute in the Hunger Games. She comes from district 12, the mining district. Her father died in a mining accident. After that, her mother went into a depression, leaving Katniss to look after her, and her sister, Prim. To provide for her family, she hunts in the woods so she can get meat to trade in the market and cook for herself. This is illegal. Katniss Everdeen Peeta Mellark is the boy tribute for district 12. Peeta's the son of a baker, and he expresses a particular interest in decorating cakes. It is revealed that he has always been in love with Katniss, despite never have talked to her before the reaping. Haymitch Abernathy is the mentor for the tributes from district 12. This is because he is the only living winner of the hunger games from district 12. He won the 50th hunger games, which happened to be a quarter quell. After coming back from the games, he gradually became an alchoholic from the terrors he saw in the hunger games. Despite being a drunk, he is quite intelligent and helps Katniss and Peeta greatly. Gale Hawthorn is Katniss's best friend and hunting parter. He is two years her elder, making him eighteen.His father died in the same mine accident Katniss's did, leading them to meet for the first time at the medal of honor ceremony.

Cinna starts out as Katniss's stylist in the Hunger Games, but they soon develop a close friendship. He nicknames her "girl on fire," and is one of the few people who can see the cruelty of the games.His clothes for Katniss draw immediate attention from others. Cinna dresses in black clothes and has normal brown hair, which is different from the usual, flashy style of the capitol. Being his first year at the Hunger Games, Cinna gets put with District 12, though he reveals that he "requested it." Prim Everdeen short for Primrose, is Katniss's twelve year old little sister. The first year she's eligible for reaping, her name is picked, prompting Katniss to volunteer to take her place. Prim is described as kind and beautiful, with blonde hair and blue eyes, unlike the usual seem characteristics of black hair and gray eyes. Like her mother, Prim is good with medicine and healing. She is also an animal lover, owning a cat, Buttercup, and a goat, which she milks. Summary: Bibliography Green, John.

While writing for a show, Generateion O!, she met James Proimos, who inspired her to write children's books. The Pin: Every tribute gets to bring 1 "token" from their district into the arena. Katniss's friend, Madge, gave Katniss a mockingjay pin, which Katniss decided to wear. The Hunger Games is a chilling, bloody and thoroughly horrifying book, a killer cocktail of Logan's Run, Lord of the Flies, The Running Man, reality TV and the myth of Theseus and the Minotaur. But it inspires in readers a kind of zeal I haven't seen since the early days of Twilight.
-Time Magazine reviewer. The considerable strength of the novel comes in Collins’s convincingly detailed world-building and her memorably complex and fascinating heroine. In fact, by not calling attention to itself, the text disappears in the way a good font does: nothing stands between Katniss and the reader, between Panem and America.
