The Book that's sweeping the nation


Katniss Everdeen- Born in district twelve, she is a strong, independent woman making her own way and looking out for her sister. In the arena she avoids as much conflict as possible but she is quite a threat.

Peeta Mellark- The son of a baker who was chosen to be in the 74th annual hunger games. He is a caring and gentle giant. He also has a little spark in his heart for Katniss

Gale Hawthorne- Katniss's hunting partner. More of a pacifist and highly objects the capitol's rule.

Haymitch Abernathy- The trainer of the newest tributes and the only victor of the hunger games from district 12. He has drowned his sorrows through his alcohol and has a lack of confidence in any other tributes

The Conflict.

This book is driven around the idea of survival of the fittest. There are moments where you never know if she's going to survive. The minor conflict, on the other hand, has very much to do with love. Does she choose Peeta or Gale? We may never know.


In the future, the nation of Panem is divided between 12 districts and the Capitol. Each year two minors from each district are selected by lottery to participate in The Hunger Games. The 24 participants are forced to eliminate their competitors in a frightening and new areana filled with trap's twists and danger. When 16-year-old Katniss's sister, Prim, is selected as one of District 12's representatives, Katniss volunteers to take her place. She and her male partner Peeta, are pitted against bigger, stronger representatives, some of whom have trained for this their whole lives

Little Snip-bit

"I can see why that day makes you happy."
"Well, I knew that goat would be a little gold mine," I say.
"Yes, of course I was referring to that, not the lasting joy you gave the sister you love so much you took her place in the reaping," says Peeta drily. (273 Collins )
