In a future North America, where the rulers of Panem maintain control through an annual televised survival competition pitting young people from each of the twelve districts against one another, sixteen-year-old Katniss's skills are put to the test when she voluntarily takes her younger sister's place.
Reviews & Summaries
What happens when the outcome for each participant isn't clear, when there are still choices? How do people conduct themselves, what are the priorities, how do you play it, and how do you survive?
Absolutely wonderful treatment of the story. I love Katniss. Her story makes sense, her skills and choices are well developed and logical, and yet you still don't really know how things will turn out. I'm already on the library list for the next two books, and I'm delighted my book club got me to put this at the top of my list.
