Katniss, a teenager already hardened to the harshness of her world, loves her little sister Prim more than almost anything. In order to get the family more grain and oil, Katniss has already put forward her own name to be a competitor in the deadly Hunger Games, in which children and teenagers fight to the death. But she's taken completely unawares when it's her sister Prim who is chosen instead. Katniss immediately volunteers to be a tribute instead rather than have her gentle little sister face the Hunger Games arena.
