During their evaluation by the Gamemakers, Katniss unexpectedly gets the highest score among the others. Meanwhile, Rue, the petite year-old girl tribute from District 11, follows Katniss and Peeta around during the training sessions. On the day before the games, in the televised interview with Caesar Flickerman , Peeta reveals his long-unrequited love for Katniss; she is initially shocked by this and believes this is a ploy to gain sponsors, but later accepts this as sincere.
Haymitch then promotes their image as " star-crossed lovers ". The Games begin, and nearly half the tributes are killed in the bloodbath at the start, fighting over the weapons and supplies throughout the arena. Katniss disregards Haymitch's earlier advice to flee immediately and nearly dies, but uses her well-practiced hunting and survival skills to hide in the woods.
After a few days, an artificial fire drives Katniss toward the others. She is spotted and treed by the "Careers" tributes and Peeta, who seems to have allied with them. Their venom kills one of the careers and drives the others away, but Katniss is stung and begins hallucinating.
Peeta returns, but instead of killing her, tells her to run away. Katniss later forms an alliance with Rue, but Rue is fatally wounded by another tribute while Katniss destroys the careers' supplies.
Katniss kills Rue's killer with an arrow, and accompanies Rue as she dies and spreads flowers over the body to show her defiance against the Capitol. In gratitude, Rue's district sends Katniss a loaf of bread.
A rule change is announced, allowing the tributes from the same district to win as a pair. Katniss finds and nurses a wounded Peeta who later revealed that he formed an alliance with the careers to protect Katniss , acting the part of a girl in love to gain gifts.
When the Gamemakers send a delivery of what each contestant needs most, Katniss risks her life to obtain medicine for Peeta.
And in March, it was announced that she is the bestselling Kindle ebook author ever. How many of Rowling's Harry Potter books have been sold as Kindle ebooks? Until March of this year, there was no such thing as a Harry Potter ebook. Rowling was slow to jump on the digital bandwagon, reportedly out of piracy fears.

Report as inappropriate. I needed to read this book for school, and honestly, I had very low expectations for it. I thought it was going to be a floofy, lame read about a teenage girl that got over publicized and would not be very interesting. Boy, was I wrong! A few pages after I started, I was hooked; I couldn't wait to find out what happened next.
Honestly, I hadn't been that excited to read a book from cover to cover in years. And needless to say, forgoing sleep and meals was simply a requirement in order to finish and get onto books 2 and 3 in the series I have since caught up on both. Seriously, just because it's popular or mainstream does not in any way take away from Collins's skill of story telling. I just wish this book existed when I was a teenager!!
