The Hunger Games

Author: Suzanne Collins
Review Written by Nicole Sathre   

     This was such a great book. I recommend others to read this series as well. I will definitely be re-reading this series. A 16 year old girl, Katniss Everdeen, knows how to survive. Her best friend, Gale, hunts with her outside of the the fence in District 12. There are a total of 13 districts. District 13 is no longer present due to a war happening in Panem. In Panem, there is a Capitol that hosts the Hunger Games every year to make sure the 13 districts know that they are under their control. 1 boy and 1 girl is taken to be a piece of the Hunger Games. The ages available range from 12-18 years old. Katniss' sister, Prim, was chosen for district 12. But Katniss volunteered to take her sister's place instead. The boy's name from District 12 who was also chosen was Pretta. Later on in the story Preeta states that he loves Katniss since the were 5. The entire time the Hunger Games were going on Preeta was doing things so that Katniss would  survive.
     To find out how this all works out you will have to read it for yourself.
