Summary:  Katniss alone wins the 74th Hunger Games to return to her family and home in District Twelve. But the admiration of a dangerous suitor changes her life and plans forever. 

Why This is Good:  I love this alternate universe even with all of the changes in circumstances, Peeta is still Peeta.  And Katniss is still Katniss.  This is a story I reread regularly and if you haven’t read it you should.
