I'm Melinda Abernathy, but you can call me Mel for short. I am sixteen years old, and live in District 12, the poorest district in Panem. My dad is Haymitch Abernathy. He is a victor, from the 50th Hunger Games, the Quarter Quell. My mother died when I was young, when I was four, soon after my younger sister, Madison was born. My dad is a drinker, it gets worse over the years, and when I'm old enough, I am moving out of our house, it is so messy. (Then again, Haymitch isn't the only one....) Every year, my little sister and I go to the Capitol with our father, and I hate the Games, they are horrible.

This is my fifth year in the reapings, and Madison's first. My name's in there six times, Madison's once. She is afraid to go into the Games, but she won't, it's not possible anyway.

People say that my father and I act alike. We don't. We have this love-hate relationship, but, don't we all?
