Mockingjay (The Hunger Games, #3) by Suzanne CollinsMy 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. Katnisss 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 on Katnisss 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.

Book Review - Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins
Mockingjay is the final book in The Hunger Games trilogy, and carries the resolution to the previous books and quite importantly the answers to the end of the second book Catching Fire. Mockingjay gives the real feel of life within a war, where nothing is the same and you're haunted by the memories of two Hunger Games. Now living in the underground, regimented world of District 13, Katniss struggles to cope with the pressures and losses life in District 13 brings and her mental health. And it seems that everyone has already decided that Katniss is the Mockingjay - the face of the rebellion - whether she's up to the job or not. While being the leader of the rebellion doesn't appeal to Katniss, she realises that to get what she wants and save the people she loves she must take on the most influential role in the rebel world.
The third and final novel in the Hunger Games trilogy opens with Katniss Everdeen walking through the remains of District 12, her former home. She is filled with guilt for her role in inciting the uprising and anger against President Snow for his oppressive tactics. Meanwhile, Peeta Mellark has been captured by the Capitol. After her dramatic rescue from the Quarter Quell arena, Katniss has been living in District 13 - the District all of Panem thought had been decimated, but was actually home to the Capitol's secret nuclear development program. Later, District 13 leveraged the nuclear arsenal to threaten the Capitol and gain autonomy.
