The  Story:  Years ago,  there was a war.  A very bad  war.  The North American Continent is  now divided  into districts.   12  living and a 13th that was bombed into oblivion.  The closer  you  are to the capitol district , the better  you life  is.   As part of their control,  the Capitol  has invented  the Hunger Games.  Every year, each district must send one boy and one  girl (  age 12- 18) to the games.  The game is survival and  the last child alive  is  the winner.
