Only had a few minutes to read this morning before Read-a-thon ended. I got to page 6 of Mockingjay. Here’s the blurb for it:
Katniss Everdeen, girl on fire, has survived, even though her home has been destroyed. Gale has escaped. Her family is safe. Peeta has been captured by the Capital. 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 a part of the Revolution without knowing it. District 13 has come out of the ashes and is now plotting to overthrow the Capital. Everyone it seems has had a hand in the carefully laid plans, everyone–except Katniss.
The success of the rebellion hinges on Katniss’s willingness to be a pawn, to accept responsibility of 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 rebel’s Mockingjay–no matter what the personal cost.
