Could you survive on your own, in the wild, with everyone out to make sure you don't live to see the morning?

In the ruins of a place once known as North America lies the nation of Panem, a shining Capitol surrounded by twelve outlying districts. The Capitol is harsh and cruel and keeps the districts in line by forcing them all to send one boy and one girl between the ages of twelve and eighteen to participate in the annual Hunger Games, a fight to the death on live TV. Sixteen-year-old Katniss Everdeen, who lives alone with her mother and younger sister, regards it as a death sentence when she is forced to represent her district in the Games. But Katniss has been close to dead before - and survival, for her, is second nature. Without really meaning to, she becomes a contender. But if she is to win, she will have to start making choices that weigh survival against humanity and life against love.

New York Times bestselling author Suzanne Collins delivers equal parts suspense and philosophy, adventure and romance, in this searing novel set in a future with unsettling parallels to our present.

                  "Hope is the only thing stronger than fear." -Suzanne Collins (Hunger games Author) 16 year old Katniss Everdeen lives a normal life with her sister, Primrose, and her mother, and her best friend/secret crush Gale in the state of Panem in District 12. Every year, Panem hosts the annual Hunger Games to control their growing population. Two participants from each district-one female and male get drawn to fight and kill each other to death. When Primrose Everdeen is chosen to enter and fight in the 74th annual hunger games, Katniss volunteers as a tribute to take her sister's place, unsure whether she will ever see Gale, Primrose, nor her mother ever again. The male tribute for district 12 is Peeta Mellark, who loves Katniss for more than just a friend. This book has humor, tragedy, and romance packed in an amazing and gripping dystopian novel. Great book for Preteens.
