About the Book

Even though Katniss has made it out of the arena alive, she's still not safe. The Capitol is angry, and wants revenge. Who do they think should pay for the unrest? Katniss. And what's worse, President Snow has made it clear that no one else is safe either. Not Katniss's family, or her friends, or the people of District 12. This book is a triller about the fight of control over Panem, and the struggle to save lives. The book is definitely a great read!

Human Rights

In Panem many human rights laws are broken. One is the 'Safety from violence'. The people of Panem have been forced to participate in the Hunger games which consists of literally fighting until the death.Plus, there are fights and deaths in Panem all the time and its never really safe. And the one that is violated is 'Right to food and water.' In most of the districts they lack of food. In district 12 katniss had to hunt herself to keep her family from starving, good food was very rare there and in many other districts.
