Mockingjay is the third and final novel in The Hunger Games trilogy by Suzanne Collins. It was released on August 24, 2010
Katniss Everdeen, the 'girl on fire', has survived, even though her home has been destroyed. Gale has escaped to District 13. Katniss' family is safe. Peeta has been captured and tortured by the Capitol. District 13 really does exist. There are rebels and there are leaders. A rebellion is unfolding and war is on the brink.
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 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.
