The Hunger Games Overview
The story unfolds on a nation called Panem. The state is cut into districts wherein The Capitol is the governing body. As punishment, The Capitol has created the annual Hunger Games wherein children from 12 to 18 must go head-to-head until one person remains standing. Two tributes, a girl and boy, are chosen from each district for the games. Katniss volunteered herself as tribute in place of her sister Prim, and Peeta was the other tribute chosen through the lottery. Katniss and Peeta are trained by Haymitch Abernathy, a former tribute from District 12. Haymitch shows the two tributes the ropes and the things they need to do to get sponsors for the event.
Peeta plays up his role as tribute and knows exactly what to say in front of the cameras. Katniss has a harder time being part of the show. Peeta tells live television that he has a crush on his fellow tribute Katniss. Katniss, despite being more skilled than Peeta, finds it difficult to play along.
