Mockingjay is the third and final installment of Suzanne Collins’s Hunger Game trilogy and it is just as packed with action and page turning suspense as the past two. A revolution has begun and Katniss is at the center of it, whether she wants to be or not. Peeta has been captured by the capital and forced to go on the air telling those in the rebellion to give up. District 13 does exist and people are flocking there to help with the rebellion. Things are starting to heat up and Katniss has to find a way to push aside all of her feelings and become the Mockingjay.
Collins has added in interesting new plot twists as well as keeping her characters growing and changing in the final book. She has introduced us to exciting characters, who for the most part we have loved, and are sad to see the end of the series. Collins’ writing is great. You easily get sucked into the story and the descriptions, allowing you to get transported to a new world. This series would make for an excellent holiday gift for anyone who is 12 or older (including adults who have started reading this for their book clubs).— Sherry
