Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins

This review may contain spoilers if you haven't read previous book in the series.
Summary: (from book jacket) 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 plans- except Katniss. The success of the rebellion hinges in 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.
Review: This book was so awesome. It was an exciting and action packed conclusion to one of my favorite series. This book focuses on the war against the capitol. I loved the fact that it really felt like the characters were in the middle of the war. The characters were amazing as always. This book centers on Katniss's feelings about the war effort,the destruction of her home and the fatcthat hse has become the center of thr rebellion. I was glad that Gale was in it a lot more than the previous books. i really got to know him better in this book.
  I liked the epilogue. It shows what has happened to the charcters since the end of the war. I wish that this didn't have to be the end. I love this series and MockingJay was no exception. I'm also anxious to know what other fans of the series thought.
