When Nancy got tasked with watching me she taught me to climb the trees and play spy. We would pretend we were stalking the Capitol to find out their weaknesses. And when she got too old for it I kept coming out to the trees whenever I could. It was a puzzle, finding out which branches could support your weight and would provide the best view. If you climbed high enough in them, the trees would allow you to see the purple-blue mountains lying to the east. In school, I was taught that those mountains shielded the Capitol from outside attack. Somewhere in the tall jagged peaks were the lavish people who made the Hunger Games. Who kill children for their amusement.
Mike Wheeler is reaped alongside his sister in the 57th Hunger Games, but the Capitol has something different in mind this time.
