This captivating trilogy is set in a dystopian society run by a wealthy Capitol city and consists of twelve poorer districts each surviving independently on their own resource. As a form of punishment, an annual pageant called the Hunger Games is held, pitting one boy and one girl from each district against one another in a fight to the death. Alliances are formed and the stakes are high as the winners’ district will be rewarded with food and supplies. Katniss Everdeen from District 12 becomes the favorite because she is unwilling to abide by the Capitol’s rules and instead tries to bring her competitors together. Gaining respect from the viewers at home, Katniss unites and motivates the masses as well.
