This story is very much like The Running Man by Stephen King. It pits people against each other for public entertainment, except they are teenagers. The author pulls the story off very well however. Katniss is the main provider for her family after her father is killed in a mining accident. When the time of the reaping comes, the selection of names for the Hunger Games, she never imagines her 12 year old sisters name will be pulled, but it is. We already started out with the strong character of Katiss, but she grows even more as she takes her sisters place as a tribute. Along with her is a boy that showed her kindness as a young child. The relationship between them goes back and forth between strained and comfortable. The description of the games and the trials Katniss faces is very well written. You really felt pulled in with the character and nervous to turn the next page because you don't know what is coming! A very good read, and leaves you excited for the next book. 5 out of 5 stars.
