“The Hunger Games” is the original novel in a bestselling series by author Suzanne Collins. This suspenseful tale inspired a popular film starring Jennifer Lawrence as protagonist Katniss Everdeen, who saves her younger sister by volunteering to compete in a televised tournament in which 24 teenagers from a post-apocalyptic society fight to the death for the entertainment of the masses. In order to survive the game and emerge victorious, this young fighter must put all her skills to the ultimate test.
