Annotation: Katness Everdeen has to fight for her life in a televised game she is forced to play. She doesn't know who to trust and what plans her partner has.
Would you kill someone? Could you kill someone? Could you kill the person sitting next to you? The Hunger Games, twenty-four enter, one leaves. Countryman against countryman; neighbor against neighbor. Some enter for glory, most because they are poor and unlucky. Katness Everdeen enters out of love. What will it take for Katness to leave The Games? The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins. May the odds be ever in your favor.
