31—MockingJay by Suzanne Collins

In, this, the third book of Suzanne Collins' Trilogy, The Hunger Games, the revolution is in full swing. In the second book Katniss (who had become the hero of all the districts), along with other past winners of the yearly Hunger Games, was forced to take part in a special anniversary game. The government was doing everything in its power to see that she was killed during the games but she was rescued at the very end of the book.

In this book Katniss is forced to become a pawn of the rebels. The rebel leader, Coin, will stop at nothing to defeat the government including using Katniss even though it puts her in danger. Eventually Katniss and Gale are entrenched in the Governments home and close to capturing the president.

Collins has crafted a fine trilogy. The books are all very engaging and rife with adventure, danger, and thrills.

I recommend you read them in order. Hunger Games, Catching Fire, and then Mockingjay.
