This year's victor, from district one, John Silver!
Katniss Everdeen lives in a dystopian future where the population is divided into twelve districts and The Capital. Life in The Capital is lavish and luxurious while life in the districts is not good, life is best in district one, and the worst in district twelve.
I volunteer as tribute!
Katniss lives in District twelve, and in order to survive she learned to hunt and became very skilled with a bow and arrow.
To remind all of the district of their failed rebellion, the capital forces 2 teenagers from all the districts to fight to the death in a competition called the hunger games. The survivor is the "Victor", and they earn a life of luxury as well as supplies for their district that year.
During the selection for the hunger games, Katniss' sister Prim is chosen as the female tribute from district 12. To protect her, Katniss volunteers to take her place.
Katniss and Peeta (male tribute from district 12) enter the hunger games after a short stay in the capital where they were trained and interviewed. Katniss surprises everyone with her quick thinking and kindness, and her and Peeta's "romance" wins over the audience's hearts.
When Katniss and Peeta are the last two left, and threaten to kill themselves by eating poisonous berries so they don't have to kill one another, the Game Makers allow them to both be Victors because there has to be a winner.
