Well, it's about these collage kids who starve because they're broke as f**k, but then one araw they find a 20$ bill on the ground and order a pizza. They savour the pizza for a week even though it gets all gross and play poker a lot. It's truly an amazing story, 5 stars.
Hunger Games is a book that takes place after a nuclear holocaust in the ashes of North America. 12 Districts are made and, as tradition, each district chooses 2 tributes to fight to the death in an arena. That's all I'll tell you because I don't want to ruin it :) read the book, watch the movie :)
