Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins

Goodreads Summary:
Katniss Everdeen, girl on fire, has survived, even though her home has been destroyed. Gale has escaped. Katniss's family is safe. Peeta has been captured by the Capitol. District 13 really does exist. There are rebels. There are new leaders. A revolution is unfolding. 

It is by design that Katniss was rescued from the arena in the cruel and haunting Quarter Quell, and it is by design that she has long been part of the revolution without knowing it. District 13 has come out of the shadows and is plotting to overthrow the Capitol. Everyone, it seems, has had a hand in the carefully laid plains - except Katniss. 

The success of the rebellion hinges on Katniss's willingness to be a pawn, to accept responsibility for countless lives, and to change the course of the future of Panem. To do this, she must put aside her feelings of anger and distrust. She must become the rebels' Mockingjay - no matter what the personal cost.

My Review:

Mockingjay is the 3rd and final book in The Hunger Games trilogy. At the end of book 2 Katniss was rescued from the arena by the rebels and Peeta was captured by the Capital. Book 3 is about the war between the Capital and the Districts.

I loved reading this book. In some ways it was very sad. Katniss did not realize what she had until she lost it. This book showed the lengths that an out-of-control government will go to to control its citizens.

There's so much more I can say about this book but I don't want to give spoilers. At times the book is disturbing in what humans can think of to do to each other. I highly recommend this book and the entire series.
