Why This Must Be Read: This story takes a few scenes to get into—its premise isn't a welcome one to its protagonist, and his life isn't a happy one. The setting is just the right amount of AU—it feels very much like we're in the District 12 we know, but without any Capitol or Hunger Games—and the Mellark family is used to poignant, painful effect despite their sparse appearances. Peeta's anger and frustration are near-palpable in this narration, which makes his eventual meeting with Katniss all the sweeter.
