Suzanne Collins Hunger Games is set in the future, the nation of Panem is separated into 12 districts which force 2 teens from each district to participate in the annual Hunger Games. The teens learn the art of survival to battle in a televised perverse game to the death, the winner brings home goods/glory for their district.
As much as I love Katniss Everdeen and the Hunger Games series I have to admit she can be over dramatic. Yeah she is scared but the capitol messed her up. She was strong and independent in the first book and it goes downhill bc she needs Peeta all the time.
