Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins
Young Adult
Katniss survived yet another Hunger Games and is now in District 13 with her family and some of the other survivors. However, Peeta was captured by the Capitol and Katniss feels the guilt. President Snow wants revenge and thinks that Katniss is responsible for the revolution.

Katniss suffers through some very dark times trying to come to grip with her new reality. Gabe is there but he is very 'into' the revolt. District 13 is using Katniss to broadcast their victories and the Capitol is using Peeta against Katniss.. Katniss takes to hiding in cupboards and closets. Katniss is also still deciding between the two guys in her life.

I loved this book the best. The character development is fantastic. The hardship and mental toil Katniss is under is depicted. Prim, Katniss' s sister grew up and Finnick and Boggs really shone. Some of the developments at the end were not to my liking but then again this is not a feel-good part of the series but a dark story.

A Great series!

First Line: "I stare down at my shoes, watching as a fine layer of ash settles on worn leather."
