THEME

Dangerous love: The theme is dangerous love because they are fighting for their lives, but also at the same time, they catch feelings for each-other and want each-other to stay alive.

IMPORTANT EVENT

An important event is when Katniss Everdeen volunteers for her little sister Primrose. It is very brave and courageous of Katniss because I'm sure that Katniss was terrified too.

RECOMMENDATION

I recommend this book for teenagers that like violence and adventure because it is a very interesting book and you will want to not stop reading it.
