In this future world ruled by peace holders with an iron fist, America is divided into 12 districts and a capital. In a part of Canada hides a secret District 13. Each district plays a role in helping the entire nation known as Panem. Katniss is a very brave and loving person. You might think Katniss is a bit over the edge with this but she is doing this for the love of her family and district. District 12 is the poorest district of them all. But most importantly, if Katniss didn't volunteer, Prim would have a big chance in dying. As you can see, Katniss made the right choice.

The Hunger Games is an event that happens every year when a boy and girl from each district (not including District 13) are randomly chosen to fight in a battle to the death. In the start you stand on a metal circle and when the gong gets hit you go sprinting to bags of supplies that will help you throughout the games. Whenever a player gets killed a cannon goes off to show they died. Every now and then a big screen carried by a hovercraft shows the tributes who have died. The tributes are monitored and shown on live TV. In the end, the district the winning tribute was from gets lots of food, hence the name The Games.
