Sixteen-year-old Katniss Everdeen volunteers in her younger sister's place and must rely upon her sharp instincts when she's pitted against highly trained Tributes who have prepared their entire lives. And, the other contender from her district just happens to be in love with her. Katniss must make impossible choices in the arena that weigh survival against humanity and life against love.
