Summary: courtesy of goodreads.com My name is Katniss Everdeen. Why am I not dead? I should be dead.
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: As the last in the trilogy I felt like this one didn’t go out with a bang. More of a flop. My main reason why I didn’t love, love this book was the ending. I won’t say what the ending is, but I was so mad. I slammed the book and chucked it across the room muttering “stupid book”. Other reasons I didn’t care for this book was the fact that it was so different that the other two. No arena, no games.
However I did like that they came across District 13, Katniss and her group of the surviving game members all band together to help save Panem. It’s more a story of the actual war than the war in the games.
All in all a very good read I gobbled up in a sitting, but of course I wish it would have ended better-at least the way I wanted it to end.
