In the ruins of a place once known as North America lies the nation of Panem, a shining Capitol surrounded by twelve outlying districts. One boy and girl between the ages of twelve and eighteen must participate in the annual Hunger Games, a fight to the death on live TV. Asixteen-year-old girl named Katniss Everdeen steps forward to take her sisters place in the Games. Katniss has been close to dead before-and survival, for her, is second nature. If she is to win she will have to start making choices that weigh survival against humanity and life against love.
Katniss wakes up and sees prim her little sister who turned twelve that year was terrified because the day of the reaping was soon and she was old enough to be picked in the reaping curled up to their mother. Katniss gets ready to go hunting in the woods.

There were two balls one with the boys names and one with the girls names and they were to be randomly picked. When Effie reaches into the girl’s ball and grabs a piece of paper and opens it and reads out Primrose Everdeen. Prim starts to walk up to the stage and then Katniss tries to get her but Peace Keepers hold her back and then she screams “I volunteer”. Katniss then tells prim to go back to mom but prim starts crying and screaming as Gale comes and picks her up and takes her away. Katniss walk
