In a distant future, the United States is now the nation of Panem – whose Capitol demands that annually the twelve districts of Panem each send one boy and one girl between the ages of 12 and18 to be trained to fight in a series of battles from which only one will survive. When Katniss Everdeen’s sister is unexpectedly chosen, she volunteers to take her place. She will be forced to go up against career tributes who have trained their entire lives to perform in the Games.
