    What a bunch of crap. How dare you use something like this for your lousy story. I only read first two and last. How dare you use somebody like JC you should be ashamed of yourself. But people like you think of no one but themselves. There feel better now?

    I wouldn't say it stinks but, it is sort of a copy. Katniss voluntered for someone she cared about too and a weird girl was the one picking the names. I liked how you changed the main character to a boy though. I say you should keep writing, just try not to copy that much. <p> I give it four stars so far. <br> &star &star &star &star

    Bay Lodgers ~ Chapter One

    You would think living in District Five, we would live like kings. But honestly, it's just any other of the Outer Districts. Little food, little control, very strict. As my eyes flutter open, they searched the room for my little brother. He was named Jeremy Lodgers. At 7 years old, he never had to worry about being plucked from our little family and tossed into an arena to fight to the death. But he did. Not himself, for me. I was 14 and my name would be in the ball 7 times. I had taken the tesserae for each person in my family, and adding to the three l already had, all togther l was in 7 times. But seriously, it was one in one thousand chance of me being picked.<br> I stepped out of bed and the coldness of the wooden floor woke me up a little more. I put my hooded jacket on and walked downstairs. Jeremy greeted me, sitting on one of our handmade chairs. Our father was a woodworker, and our aunt was a Peacekeeper. <BR>"Bay..." He whispered. I placed my hand on his shoulder reasuringly. "I won't be picked. I promise. Look, Father made muffins." As he was distracted by the gritty muffins, l quietly made my way out of the house. We lived on the rough side of town, which was called the Smokeys. I don't know who invented that name. <br>As l made my way to pick some berries that were just inside the fence of the District, l was stopped by a familiar face. <br>"Hey Tree!" Exclaimed Milla. <br>Milla had had been my best friend ever since we first started school together. We grew closer after both our mothers died in an electric power explosion. <br>"Reaping Day, aye? Jeremy worried again?" She said.<br>"Yes, but it's not likel–" l was cut off by a loud bang that came from the main town square. It meant it was time to gather. <br>"l guess l'll see you there. Bye Bay!" Milla scampered off and l was left to find Jeremy and Dad. Since Aunt Serenity was a Peacekeeper, she was stationed around the area. <br>•~•~•~•<br> "Jeremy." I said, annoyance in my voice. "Go with Father." <br>"But–" <br>"Go!" <br>After l was checked in, l herded into the square where the 14 year olds stood. Milla was three people away from me. The District's announcer was named Geron Kingger. She was a little scary. She had a blue wig on and her fingernails were way to long to be real. After the anthem played and what not, the tenstion began. "Welcome to the 43 Reaping! As always, ladies first!" She fumbled around for a couple minutes before scooping up a piece of paper. At the last moment, l glanced back at Jeremy. His eyes were closed and he was mouthing a silent prayer. My thoughts were cut off by Geron. It wasn't me.<br>The name was Millascent Dayslee.<br>It took me a moment to comprahend. Milla? She couldn't go into the arena, she had two little sisters and a mindless dad to take care of. It was her eyes that finally brought me back. They were terrified, yet somehow brave. She walked past me and was about to climb up the first stair before a strangled cry rose in my throat. <br>"Milla!" I pushed past the kids in front of me and ran in front of the Peacekeepers that tried to restrain me. "No...no..." l could see Milla mouth. "Think of Jeremy." Jeremy. Out of the corner of my eye, l saw him being held back by my father. But l also saw Milla's little sisters, hugging each other and crying into each others shoulders. I had to do this for them. <br> "l voulnter!" <p> Can you tell me if this is good or not? This is the first story l've written. It's based off the Hunger Games.

    Boring and poorly wrote.

    Several words are miss spelled i.e. bologna. It also drags on with verbage uneccesary to the story.
