Set in the shining Capitol and brutal dystopian world of Panem, built on the ruins of North America, The Hunger Games trilogy and its prequel, The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes , explore the effects of violence and media sensationalism on young people—through the gripping story of a brave and fierce teenage girl. Katniss is shipped off to the Capitol—and certain death—along with her fellow District 12 Tribute, the peaceful Peeta Mellark. Katniss and Peeta play for the camera and attempt to avoid a terrible death at the hands of their arena competitors. Throughout the series, Katniss struggles with her place in the spotlight; her feelings for Peeta and another young fighter from District 12, Gale Hawthorne; and her purpose as a warrior. In an interview, Suzanne Collins explained part of her motivation for writing the Hunger Games: to educate young people about the realities of war a mission instilled by her father, a Vietnam veteran who spent his career in the Air Force and counteract the impact of reality TV, which, she believes, often desensitizes young people to violence and suffering. Particularly struck by the current dichotomy between flashy celebrity lifestyles and the real-life hardships of many poor, disenfranchised Americans, Collins hopes to shine a light on such troubling issues and help young people become more aware of genuine tragedy. All three novels in the original trilogy took a spot on the New York Times best seller list, with the debut, The Hunger Games , sitting on the list for more than consecutive weeks. It is the morning of the reaping that will kick off the 10th annual Hunger Games. In the Capitol, year-old Coriolanus Snow is preparing for his one shot at glory as a mentor in the Games. The once-mighty house of Snow has fallen on hard times, its fate hanging on the slender chance that Coriolanus will be able to out charm, outwit, and outmaneuver his fellow students to mentor the winning tribute.
