He needs a victory badly – both to return his fallen house to glory and to fund his tuition fees for the university. But to his disappointment, he is assigned to Lucy Gray Baird, the tribute from the poorest district in Panem. Refusing to give up, Coriolanus tries to make the best of the situation. He attempts to learn more about Lucy Gray, to help her survive in the arena. In the process, he falls in love with her – only to leave her to her own devices in the Hunger Games, amongst other brutal and starving tributes.”
