Katniss Everdeen, a girl from district 12, is a hunter. Every year they pick 1 boy and 1 girl from the ages of 12-18. Those kids go to the Capitol, where the rich people live, and go into arena and fight to the death.
What is powerful
I thought it was powerful when Katniss told Prim, her sister, that she would be okay even though she knew they were never safe. It was also powerful when Katniss volenteered for her sister. She wanted to protect her, which I thought was powerful.
