Katniss Everdeen lives in a post-North America called Panem. It is ruled by the \"Capitol\", and is divided into districts, twelve to be exact. Katniss lives in district twelve. There were thirteen, but back in the \"Dark Days\" when the districts tried to overthrow the Capitol, thirteen almost succeeded and was blown up by nuclear bombs. Every year, to remind the districts they should never try something like that again, they host \"The Hunger Games\" where each district has to select two \"Tributes\" ( a boy and a girl) to participate in a fight to the death on live TV. Last tribute alive wins. When Katniss' little sister is selected, she voulenteers for her, and her fellow tribute is Peeta Mellark, who once saved her form starvation. The Hunger games are held in an arena, chosen by \"Gamemakers\" in the wild. if things get too dull and the tributes aren't fighting, it's the gamemakers job to inserted deathly surprises to bring them closer together into a fight... I'm not sure if I should say anymore, I could spoil something.
