Welcome to Panem: its Capitol repressively rules twelve satellite Districts, enslaving the populations as workers and controlling them through hunger.
This harsh rule culminates in the annual Hunger Games - from each District, one female and one male Tribute are forcibly selected for a terrifying reality TV game-show in which contestants literally fight to the death. But Katniss Everdeen is no ordinary Tribute: she's used to surviving in the wild and in the unpredictable, hostile arena, she's not giving up.
Katniss and fellow District 12 Tribute, Peeta, become pawns in a complex political game in this scarily believable, highly addictive dystopian vision. It's a compelling story of survival, which challengingly explores ideas about society, control and freedom. The first in the groundbreaking Hunger Games trilogy, this bestselling book set a trend for dystopian novels for young adults.

This book is so great!!!!!!!!!!
This book was very exciting. I found myself not being able to put it down even when I was on a vacation to the beach. I think I read this when I was 11 and I'm 13 now and I still love it. It is good for adults as well as preteens.
