MOCKINGJAY by Suzanne Collins

On the back cover:

"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 Katnss was rescued from the arena of 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 plans- 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 rebel's Mockingjay- no matter what the personal cost."

Jennifer's Review:

I LOVED Hunger Games. I liked Catching Fire a lot. Mockingjay? It was such a disappointment. The beginning was going along like the first two but then it turned into, what seemed to me, just a book to get finished by the author. It was rushed and the very end had so little detail that I just sat there when I was done and thought, "WHAT??"

 I am grateful for an ending but am so disappointed in what little details were given.

I give Mockingjay 3 1/2 stars.
