This whole book is about a young girl named Katniss. Her country is divided into 12 districts, and then the capital. Each year, one girl and one boy are sent to the annual Hunger Games from each district. She has to go to her country’s annual Hunger Games. The Gunger Games is an event where 24 kids are put into an arena and are forced to fight to the death.
She makes many new friends along the way, but she also makes many new enemies. She has many tragedies along the way. For example, one of her closest friends in the games gets killed. Katniss helps unite the districts slowly throughout the story.
Her story consists of betrayal, love, hate, and friendship. Her journey has many ups and downs and it ends with an unforgettable event. I would recommend this book to anyone from the ages 12 and up. I believe that even adults will enjoy this book. Although you may not like the science fiction genre, I’m sure you will enjoy this book. This book will just make you want to pick up the next one!
