The Hunger Games
The Hunger Games takes place in a post-apocalyptic world in which one area, called "The Capital" became dominant over the surrounding 13 areas which became its districts. However, in the past the districts and the Capital went to war with each other and during this time district 13 was destroyed. In order to keep the remaining 12 districts in line in the future, every year the Capital hosts " The Hunger Games". In the Hunger Games two contestants are chosen from each district, a boy and a girl, to compete in the Capital for their lives. Every year there is one victor and 23 losers who die. One year a twelve year old girl from district 12 named Prim is chosen to compete. However, her older sister, Katniss, chooses to take her place to save her life. Competing for her life Katniss must win the support of the Capital, outsmart and out-survive the other competitors in order to escape with her own life.
