Summary over Chapter 7 (Training Stations) • Haymitchasks Katniss and Peeta if they want to train together or separately. Ultimately they decide to train together. Katniss’s strength is obviously with a bow, and Peeta is strong and an excellent wrestler. • Peeta says Katniss has no idea the effect she can have, and his mother even praised Katniss over him, calling her a survivor. • Katniss says she couldn’t have survived without Peeta, and from Peeta’s reaction she realizes he remembers giving her the bread those years ago. • Almost all the tributes are bigger than her, though many are clearly underfed. • The tributes from the wealthier districts are all healthy.
Summary over Chapter 7 (Training Stations) • The training area has different stations with instructors • Over the next three days, they visit more stations while the Gamemakers—twenty or so men and women—watch from the stands and take notes. • Katniss is last to have her private session with the Gamemakers. She selects a bow from the weapons available, but it’s different than her bow at home and takes some practice before she can use it accurately. She takes a few difficult shots to impress the Gamemakers, but notices that most of them are focused on a roasted pig that’s just arrived at their table. • She becomes furious, knowing her life is at stake in the Games, and fires an arrow straight toward the Gamemakers that skewers that apple in the pig’s mouth. Then she walks out.
