The Hunger Games
By Suzanne Collins
Peeta Mellark: Being the male of District 12, Peeta was raised by a baker, with more money than Katniss, and is very strong. Peeta has a strong love for Katniss, which started when both Katniss and Peeta were young. In the games, Peeta will do almost anything to protect Katniss.
Cinna: This is Katniss's dresser for the beginning of the games. Being the only "normal" guy at the capital, he prepares Katniss for the audience and all of her other troubles.
Cato: A strong, "BA" guy from district 2. He is the leader of what Katniss calls the Career Pack. He is aggressive and has no mercy.
Rue: This is the little tiny girl from District 11. She has crazy nature talents, knows almost everything about the land, and is very sneaky and quiet. Katniss first meets her at the capital, and somewhat "adores" her.
Passage From "The Hunger Games"
This powerful quote explains why the Hunger Games happen every year. The games happen because the Capitol doesn't want people do try to escape or do something wrong. So to prevent that, they show "who's boss" by killing 23 of the districts' children. What this means is that these Hunger Games are pretty much controlling the districts.
