The story takes place in a future dystopian country, Panem, where there are 12 tightly-controlled and abused districts that exist to support Panem’s capital (called The Capital). The narrative follows Katniss Everdeen, a 16-year-old girl who has been unwillingly chosen to represent her district in The Hunger Games, a televised fight-to-the-death sport established to suppress the districts and entertain the Capital.

This story is very popular with kids, which makes it easily engaging. I would only recommend reading this with either advanced students or with guidance; the author is fond of multi-syllabic words that can easily muddy the text to a struggling reader.
