March 15th Independent Reading

For my next book, I’ll be reading The Hunger Games. I’ve watched the four movies but I’ve always wanted to read the books. I’ve been told that the story is the same, but some details change. Also, the books have way more stuff and I’m curious to know what these things are in The Hunger Games books.

In The Hunger Games society, an annual event is placed in which one boy and one girl between the ages of 12–18 from each of the twelve districts which are surrounding the Capitol are selected randomly to compete in a televised battle fighting for survival.

The objective of the Hunger Games is to provide entertainment to the Capitol. To remind the districts the failed rebellion of the current competitors’ ancestors.

The person who wins is called a victor. Victors receive income from the Capitol for life. They are given a special status in their districts and are allowed to live in the part of their district called “Victors’ Village”.
