Mockingjay (Hunger Games #3)
by Suzanne Collins
390 pages

In book three of "The Hunger Games" trilogy, Katniss Everdeen, "The Girl On Fire", has survived the Quarter Quell.  Katniss is now the "Mockingjay" aka the face of the rebellion against the Capitol.  Her main goal (unbeknownst to her superiors) is to kill President Snow.  Having relocated to District 13 (which exists after all) when District 12 was bombed, Katniss is now a soldier hoping to be with the unit that gets sent to the Capitol.  There, she will kill Snow or die trying. 

People weren't kidding when they say that this is the worst book of the three. It just kind of dragged on and on, and there may have been a couple of times when I wanted to punch Katniss in the face.  I get that she's only seventeen so she's supposed to be kind of whiny and "woe is me" like most teenagers, but still. Katniss takes it to the next level. Definitely not my favorite.
