The third and final installment to the Hunger Games trilogy does not disappoint. Katniss is now holed up in District 13's underground community. Gale, Katniss' mother, and sister Primm have made it to District 13 as well, but Peeta is a captive of the Capitol. The remainder of District 12 has been firebombed and destroyed. Katniss must fulfill her revenge upon the Capitol, and kill President Snow. She enters into a deal with Coin, the leader of District 13, to provide immunity to all Hunger Game victors, as well as the privilege to kill Snow in exchange for becoming the Mockingjay - the symbol and motivation of the rebellion. What ensues is a roller coaster of a story that is totally unpredictable and will leave you breathless. Many will ask "...is it Peeta, Gale or neither?" Reed Reads Score: 5
