No wonder people call it "A classic"!!! It's an awesome book! It's a bit scary though. The main character is Katniss Everdeen. The cool thing about this book is that it is placed in the future. In the book they say that the land they live in was once North America but there was a huge war that destroyed a lot of the continent. Then the victors of the war ( or the Capitol) divided the land into 13 districts. District 13 got destroyed by the Capitol because they where protesting against this so they got blown up. Because the Capitol wanted the continent Panem to be peaceful, they decided to punish each of the districts for the war by forcing each district to send one boy and girl to fight against the 22 other tributes. Until one remained. They called it the Hunger Games. If you like sci fi books and adventure books you would like it.
