Claire, a blonde haired, green eyed girl from California, was not expecting to be picked for the government's "Survive or Die" game.  However, on one particular night, a stranger took her choice from her by putting her name into their neighborhood's Jar.  Slightly provoked, she decided she would not tell her family of the news.  But what happens when her family gathers around the TV to watch the results?  Is she picked for the game or is she not?

    Reagan is a angered 18 year old living in the state of New York.  His family, which consists of his mother and his younger sister, is in desperate need for money.  In the past he had promised his mother that he would join the game when he was 17, but circumstances delayed his fate for a year later.  From the first time he saw the "Survive or Die" logo on the TV, he knew he was going to be picked.
    ***
    In the deepest Depression the United States have ever known, one girl and one boy from each sate (age 17 to 18) could place their names into Jars which would then be taken to the government to be sorted.  Once sorted, the boy and girl would be taken to an Island where their only provisions are two outfits, one for night and one for day, and a lunch for the first day.
    ***
    If you ran into anyone you would kill them in fear that they would be the ones to win instead of you.  If you survived... your state could win up to a million dollars for food, road construction, and anything else they were struggling with.

    (Yes, I got the idea from the Hunger Games, so the idea isn't mine.  BUT!  The characters and scenery are my own.)
I wonder who this Peter character will be. Please, please please may this not have any love triangles. It's already sounding a lot like the Hunger Games and although I loved the series, I don't know if I can really read it again, or any sort of variation on it. In some ways, I thought this chapter sort of lost the feeling it had with the beginning. That sense of fear masked with courage. Hopefully it's just like that because it's the beginning! I'm not going to give up on it yet!
