The Hunger Games A.R. Level: 5.3
A.R. Points: 15 no no SUMMARY In future America, after a huge war, they emerged 12 Districts and a Capital, who pretty much enslaves all of the other districts. Every year the Capitol of Panem hosts an event called the Hunger Games –To remind the citizens of the Capital's power and the simple reason of the good t.v. a boy and a girl – are drafted from each of the twelve districts to be brought to an arena and fight to the death. Only one person can win. This year, unfortunately, Katniss's little sister is selected for the Hunger Games, so Katniss volunteers to take her place. Also selected is Peeta Mellark. she is thrown
into a world of love,
grief, rebellion, and most
importantly, hunger. the tribute selection process, Katniss and Peeta are taken away to the Capitol to prepare for the Games and perpared for live TV. their support team is introduced which includes Haymitch (a former Hunger Games winner, who showed up drunk) , Effie (their wrangler), and Cinna and Portia (their stylists). During the opening ceremonies, Cinna and Portia dress Katniss and Peeta in flames and they draw much attention to themselves. During training, Katniss reveals her archery skills to the Gamemakers and scores an amazing 11 out of 12. Peeta gets a lower score and asks to be coached separately. Peeta also announces in an interview that he has a big crush on Katniss. All 24 of the tributes are transported to the arena to fight it out. Katniss is on her own at first, but then she discovers that Peeta has teamed up with the Career Tributes. They eventually corner her in a tree, but she drops a tracker jacker nest (mutated killer wasp) on them. In the Process Katniss
found a bow and arrow on the cornicopia After this, Katniss teams up with Rue, a small tiny girl from District 11 who reminds her of her sister Prim. The two are able to take out the Career Tributes' food supply, which totally infuriates their leader, Cato. Also, Peeta doesn't appear to be teamed up with them anymore Rue is killed around this time by one of the Career Tributes. Katniss honors her body by covering it in flowers.
the announcer, wanting to bring back the romance story between Peeta and Katniss, changes the rules of the game: two people from a single district can now win. PEETA IS FOUND BY KATNISS wounded and camouflaged in the muddy bank of a stream. She nurses him back to health and realizes that by playing up the romance angle, they can get gifts from sponsors. Katniss and Peeta must face off with Cato, the only other surviving tribute, but before that they are all pursued by wild WOLVES which are actually genetically mutated killing TRIBUTES THAT HAVE DIED. Katniss later shoots Cato and he falls into the pack. Thinking they've won, nothing still happens. An announcer comes back on and says the rules have changed back: only one winner allowed. Katniss ANd Peeta couldn't kill each other,
so they take the poisonous berries in an act
of double suicide. Fortunately, the announcer
comes back on before they can kill themselves,
and says that they win Katniss and Peeta keep up the loving ways for the post-games reunion and interviews, knowing that the Capitol would be watching out for any tricks Eventually Katniss figures out that Peeta really is in love with her and he wasn't acting and he figures out that she wasn't ever in love with him they put on a happy face for the camera, take each other's hands and step onto the platform....
