Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins

Katniss, a young girl living in the seam takes an incredible journey in The Hunger Games, by Suzanne Collins.  She lives in a country split up into 13 districts. The Capitol destroyed district 13 after they had tried to rebel, and to keep the other districts from doing the same, the capitol has invented a game, the Hunger Games.  Two players are taken from each district for a total of twenty four and they are then placed in a large arena left to fight to the death. The last one standing is reigned champion and lives in luxury for the rest of his or he life. Katniss lives in a part of district 12 called the seam. This is a place where you almost have no choice but to have wilderness skills, for you need them in order to survive and put food on the table everyday. But when someone very close to Katniss gets their name drawn for the Hunger Games, she wont let them go and volunteers to take their place.  Once the games actually start, things get a little bit more complicated. The remainder of the book is more of a twisted love tale than anything else but when two are left and only one can win…decisions must be made because their can only be one winner of these games. The question is: who will it be?
