The book I chose to read for my second quarter government book was The Mocking Jay from the Hunger games series. The author of this book is Suzanne Collins. There is a lot that goes on in the story, involving many things in the war of her districts. It is causing a rebellion in the districts. Katniss takes stock of her new position as a rebel in District 13. Only three victors were saved from the arena from the last book from the Hunger games series; Beetee who is an old man from District 3, also known as Volts, Finnick who is the the victor from District 4 and Katniss's first ally and Katniss herself, but Peeta wasn't one of them – he's still missing, along with other victors, Enobaria who is the female tribute from District 2, Johanna
The main problem/conflict throughout the novel is the struggle to survive. The 24 contestants in the Hunger Games must kill each other and be the last one remaining. Another conflict is the conflict that Katniss has with herself. She battles with herself, unable to decide whether she loves Gale or if she loves Peeta. For all of the contestants, they must decide who to befriend, betray, or kill.
Mockingjay begins with Katniss being informed that District 12 has been destroyed by the Capitol and that she is currently in District 13. The district that was rumored to have been destroyed.
Katniss and Gale went to a meeting. They had to watch Peeta’s interview with Caesar. Caesar had asked Peeta about the Quarter-Quell game and whose side he is on, rebels or the capital? Then Peeta got mad and said he should have saved Katniss and couldn't. He screams at Caesar about Katniss's innocence. Katniss had tried to leave the meeting ,but Coin told her that she was not excused. Then she ran and hid in a closet. Then Gale came in the closet and sat next to her. Katniss was glad they were friends again. She begins to think more highly of the people in 13 and what they've gone through. Katniss went back to her quarters and could not sleep, even though her mother, sister, and Buttercup are there with her.
Peeta and Katniss had dinner at Mayor Undersee’s house in District 12. Katniss was happy that everyone in the entire district will fill their empty growling tummies. She accidently saw on the mayor's office television a news report that there is an uprising in District 8. Instantly, Katniss realized that this that is what President Snow was afraid of. Afterward, Katniss met Bonnie and Twill who have escaped district 8. They are heading for district 13, the main center for nuclear weaponry that was once destroyed by the first rebellion, is now functioning and accepting refuges.

To Kill a Mockingbird is an amazing book filled with life lessons. It gives the chance to realize how horrible people can be and how injustice can fit into the world. Though most people will leave the book with a different conclusion. It is probably safe to say everyone will have a positive conclusion and a new frame of mind. To Kill a Mockingbird is truly a
Aside from the fact that being a responsible person is a potent trait to have, being responsible has many benefits such as being triumphant in life and having an adequate reputation.
The story starts with the introduction of the main character – Katniss Everdeen, and her loyal best friend – Gale. Katniss and Gale are both the breadwinners of their families, they complete their daily routine of hunting together and are selling their catch on a market – illegally of course. However, the peace in Panem can’t last too long – her sister, Primrose/Prim, is selected to participate in the 74th Hunger Games and Katniss volunteers to take her place. The District 12 gets its first volunteer in the history.
When Katniss finally agreed to being the Mockingjay, she became the symbol of the rebellion, meaning all of the rebels looked up to her. Katniss acted as their leader, their reason to fight back against the Capitol. Hope played a huge part in Mockingjay, because Katniss would have most likely died if it wasn’t for Squad 451’s willpower and bravery to keep Katniss alive. Half of the districts would end up siding with the Capitol, or maybe stay out of the war, causing the Rebels to have lesser numbers. Finally, Katniss wouldn’t have agreed to being the Mockingjay if it wasn’t for Peeta and Prim. One of her main goals was to rescue Peeta from the Capitol, and if Katniss didn’t have Prim, she wouldn’t have anyone to really fight for in the war.
Succeeding Katniss’s rescued from the previous hunger games, it is revealed that she is living in district 13 (which was believed to be non-existent) with the rest of district 12, who were bombed. President coin pressures her into becoming the face of the revolution, the Mockingjay, which she accepts after she sees Peeta, who is captured by the capitol, acting as a traitor. While seeing another broadcast of Peeta, he warns Katniss that district 13 is about to be bombed, and that they will be dead by morning. After it is deemed safe to leave the underground bomb shelter, Gale and other rebels make a plan to rescue Peeta as well as Annie, who are hostages by president
Mockingbird by Kathryn Erskine is a thought-provoking fiction novel about a young girl with autism who is trying to find her place in this world while also dealing with the after-effects of the death of her older brother. Mockingbird is a revealing story that allows one to look inside the mind of a child with autism. Caitlin, the main character, has Asperger’s Syndrome, a term that was still widely in use at the time of the book’s publication. Caitlin is high functioning and extremely smart, but lacks appropriate social skills and has difficulty reading others’ emotions. As a younger child, she would flap her hands, spin around, hide, bite, and rock back and forth in response to frustrating or overwhelming situations. Currently an
Suzanne Collins, the author of The Hunger Games, imagines a world where people are divided by district just like the real world does with the high, middle, low classes. This book is full of themes, literary devices and also talks about how the government — in this case the Capitol — oppresses their citizens.
I did my book report on The Hunger games, because it is suspenseful, adventurous, and has tons of action. This is about Katness, Peeta, Haymitch, Effie, and the Games.
