The Hunger Games
"I risked a quick look-out once or twice, and could see the spider-man in front of his tent. He seemed to be dividing his men up into parties and instructing them by drawing diagrams in the bare earth."

"His eyes kept on searching among the horsemen. Suddenly he stiffened. His bow came up like a flash, bent to its full. He loosed. The shaft took my father in the left of his chest."
"'...Katherine's barely concious. She can't send to you. But they keep on asking us both questions, on and on.... If you could see what they've done to her.... Oh, Katherine, darling. ...Her feet, Micheal - oh, her poor, poor feet....'"
Chapter 12
