Before The Hunger Games Began

        As you probably already know, the movie, "The Hunger Games" is said to be even bigger than twilight, another popular movie and book,but today we aren't talking about 5 star film and what not, were going to talk about how life was before the hunger games. The hunger games takes place in a far future where war nearly cut of the human race, but the capitol organized what was once north America into 13 districts, but to keep rebels from uprising, the capitol makes each district send one boy and one girl between the ages of twelve and eighteen into an area to battle to the death where only one will come out alive.
         The main character, Katniss Everdeen lives in the poorest district, district 12, where she hunts and trades to keep her family alive, But she doesn't do this all alone. Her best friend/Allie/ is Gale, a strong,  about 17  boy who is in much of the same situation. Together they make a fantastic team, until the 74th annual hunger games comes around, and its not what you'd expect.12 year old Primrose Everdeen is chosen to go into the hunger games and fight for survival. Prim. This is Katniss's younger sister. A stagger of pain shoots through Katniss and she doesn't know what to do. Without thinking she volunteers. Now a boy will be chosen. Peeta Mellark is called. He is an old friend, in a way. After her father died, her mother tuned out and she had to find food on her own. She was starving, searching through trash cans only to be screamed at by those who owned it. Peeta owned a bread shop. He saw Katniss and tossed her a loaf of bread. This saved her from starvation. How could she kill the boy who saved her, or will she?Find out for yourself by reading the book.
