really liked it
bookshelves: fromlibrary, fantasy, ya

In a scary near future, every year a reality TV show takes place where 12 boys and 12 girls from each of the 12 regions in the country fight to the death in a kill or be killed game. This year 16-year-old Katniss Everdeen steps forward instead of her sister. She doesn't want to see her die, she wants her to live, she wants to live but doesn't reckon her chances as high.

Her fellow regional compeditor is Peeta Mellark, who claims he loves her, but can she trust him? Who will survive, can they both survive?

I liked it, found it very interesting, occasionally the unremitting brutality became a bit too much but overall it was enjoyable.
