_ In the ruins of a place once known as North America
lies the nation of Panem, a shining Capitol surrounded by twelve
outlying districts. The Capitol is harsh and cruel and keeps the
districts in line by forcing them all to send one boy and one girl
between the ages of twelve and eighteen to participate in the annual
Hunger Games, a fight to the death on live TV. Sixteen-year-old Katniss
Everdeen, who lives alone with her mother and younger sister, regards
it as a death sentence when she is forced to represent her district in
the Games. But Katniss has been close to dead before-and survival. - Barnes & Noble
