Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins
Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins is the third and final book in the Hunger Games Series.
When Katniss wakes up in District 13 at the end of Catching Fire, she is confused. The whole world is in rebellion mode. President Coin is leading the Rebellion from District 13. Gale managed to get her mom and sister out of District 12 before it was bombed by the Capitol. Peeta has been captured by Snow and his army. Katniss, although feeling manipulated, agrees to be the “poster-child” for the rebellion. As the Mockingjay, she will try to unite all the up-risers for a final attack on the Capitol. She agrees if both Peeta and Annie (Finnick’s love) will be saved, and that she is allowed to be the one to kill President Snow.
However, when Peeta is finally back, he is not the same. Having been brainwashed using the tracker jack virus, he now is terrified of Katniss and sees her as the enemy. Any chance to kill her will be taken.
A march on the capitol results in the death of someone near and dear to Katniss, but when she confronts Snow, he tells her the bombing was Coin’s doing, not his. Gale isn’t sure, and Katniss isn’t sure who to believe.
A great final book to this apocalyptic tale.
Favorite Quotes from Mockingjay:
“You love me. Real or not real?” I tell him, “Real.”
“Are you, are you coming to the tree?
Wear a necklace of rope, side by side with me.
Strange things did happen here.
No stranger would let it be if we met up
At midnight in the hanging tree.”
