Backround for The Hungers Games
In the future, the world is split into 12 districts. Each district is responsible for something. District 12, for example, handles coal and mining. All these districts are controlled by the Capitol, where lives the president, and he can be very cruel. The Capitol, to show the Districts how weak they are, they make them participate in the Hunger Games. A boy and a girl are chosen from each district to participate in the game. An arena is set up that looks like a natural surrounding {a jungle, rain forest, desert, etc...). Here they have to try and survive and kill eachother off. The one who is the last standing wins and earns food and gifts for their District, and also can never be selected for the Games again.
The theme of the story is love, rebellion, and survival.

Some of the characters
Katniss Everdeen
Katniss Everdeen
Gale Hawthrone
In the future, the world is split into districts. Each district is responsible for something: District 12, for example, handles coal and mining.
All these districts are controlled by the Capitol, where lives the president who is always very, very cruel.
The Capitol, to show the Districts how weak they are and how little control they have, hosts the Hunger Games.
Two tributes are selected from each district to participate in a game. An arena is set up that looks like a natural surrounding {a jungle, rain forest, desert, etc..) Here, the tributes have to try to survive and kill each other off. The one who is the last standing wins and earns food and gifts for their District, and also can never be selected for the Games.
Once chosen, you can't get out of it unless someone else offers to go for you, which no one is entirely willing to do.
To get chosen, your name is written on a piece of paper and put into a small bowl, and is chosen at random. Only children are put once {I believe you're safe at the age of 18}, but poorer families are forced to add their children's name multiple times because the more you put your name in, the more grain you get for your family. Of course, this means you're even more prone to be selected
Katniss has to survive, she falls in love with Peeta, she creates a major rebellion against the Capitol by nearly committing suicide at the end.
Plot
Katniss Everdeen is a teenage girl who lives in District 12, an impoverished coal-mining region in the country of Panem. She's a volunteer tribute in Panem's annual Hunger Games, having taken the place of her younger sister in an act of heroic self-sacrifice.

Likes include: bows, arrows, and lamb stew. Also: a certain guy named Gale.

Gale is Katniss's hunting partner and closest friend from District 12. The two characters have a good deal in common, from their backgrounds, to their family situations, to their shared harsh opinions on Panem's government. There's also some romantic tension simmering beneath the surface, but for now it has yet to come to a full boil.
