Little does she know that her actions have caused a much bigger stir than intended, affecting more than just her own survival but also causing unrest rippling throughout the other districts. In a twisting turn of events, the Capitol announces the 75th Hunger Games with a twist- tributes will be selected from the surviving victors of the previous Games. Suzanne Collins continues the story of Katniss Everdeen, testing her more than ever before, and surprising readers at every turn.

After the shocking events at the end of Catching Fire, the action picks right up to Katniss’ rescue from the arena in the cruel and haunting Quarter Quell. If Katniss could go home, she would, except District Twelve has been destroyed and Peeta has been captured by the Capitol. District Thirteen has emerged from the depths of the shadows and myths and is plotting to overthrow the Capitol. Everyone, it seems, has had a hand in the carefully laid plans- except for Katniss. Drawn in the whirlwind of a revolution, the success of the rebellion hinges on Katniss’ willingness to be a pawn, to accept responsibility for the countless lives at stake, and to change the course of the future of Panem. To do this, she must put aside her feelings of anger and distrust. Katniss must become the symbol of the rebellion- she must become the Mockingjay- no matter what the personal cost.

The Hunger Games
In the ruins of a place once known as North America lies the nation of Panem, a shining Capitol surrounded by twelve outlying districts. The Capitol is harsh and cruel and keeps the districts in line by forcing them all to send one girl and one boy between the ages of twelve and eighteen to participate in the annual Hunger Games, a fight to the death on live TV. Sixteen-year-old Katniss Everdeen, who lives alone with her mother and younger sister, regards it as a death sentence when she is forced to represent her district in the Games. But Katniss has also resolved to outwit the creators of the games.
After winning the brutal Hunger Games, Katniss and Peeta return to their district, hoping for a peaceful future. But their victory has caused rebellion to break out ... and the Capitol has decided that someone must pay. As Katniss and Peeta are forced to visit the districts on the Capitol's Victory Tour, the stakes are higher than ever. Unless they can convince the world that they are still lost in their love for each other, the consequences will be horrifying.
Against all odds, Katniss Everdeen has survived the Hunger Games twice. But now that she's made it out of the bloody arena alive, she's still not safe. The Capitol is angry. The Capitol wants revenge. Who do they think should pay for the unrest? Katniss. And what's worse, President Snow has made it clear that no one else is safe either. Not Katniss's family, not her friends, not the people of District 12.
