Her father died in a mining accident, which lead to her mother to fall into a state of depressing, causing Katniss to become the main provider for her and her sister Primrose.

Battle Of Pride
Katniss Everdeen had a greatness foreshadowed upon her when she volunteered for her sister to compete in the 74th annual Hunger Games. This leads to her foreshadowing as a hero because you know that she must win the games in order to come back home to her family, especially her sister.
Katniss had a lot of emotional quest throughout the book, but mist notably was the one she faced when competing in the games. In the interview with Ceaser Flikerman Peeta says how he was in love with Katniss and now she must use that to her advantage to survive the games. Although Katniss does start to develop feelings for Peeta and this causes her to question her every move and judgement.
Katniss has a battle of pride when she is put into the arena with 23 other tributes, including Peeta, and forced to battle to the death. Throughout the games she has to over come many obstacles that conflict with her views and pride. One specific example is at the end of the games she is willing to kill herself along with Peeta in an effort to defy the capital because she wants to keep her pride.
In the end Katniss Everdeen didn't die in the games, but instead she came out victorious along side her fellow tribute, and lover Peeta Mellark. Although this victory does come with a price, which would be revealed later on in the books because her defiance upset the Capitol and would ultimately lead to a rebellion.
