Chapter 1

My name is Rue Mellark. I am 12 years old. My mother and father were in the hunger games when they were younger. They won it together.

To the 91st annual Hunger Games Reaping! May the odds be ever in your favour! Ladies first. I squeezed my dad's hand tight. She put her hand in to the reaping bowl and drew out a piece of paper.
