This is the final book in the ground-breaking Hunger Games trilogy.

Against all odds, Katniss Everdeen has survived the Hunger Games twice. But now that she's made it out of the bloody arena alive, she's still not safe. The Capitol is angry. The Capitol wants revenge. Who do they think should pay for the unrest? Katniss.

And what's worse, President Snow has made it clear that no one else is safe either. Not Katniss' family, not her friends, not the people of District 12.

          Comments about Mockingjay:

          I read the trilogy as a bonding excercise with my 13 year old nephew. This was disappointing end to a frivoulous yet troubling story. All the worst aspects of the first two books were amplified in the last, with poor role models, a superficial story line and cheap "car crash" grab for attention. The plot is well suited for conversion to a video game. Luckily the narcasistic behavoir, social selfishness and life synocisms are mostly lost on the intended reading group. If they are not, then I'm concerned for the worlds future social fabric.

          Suzanne Collins

          Since 1991, Suzanne Collins has been busy writing for childrenâ??s television. She has worked on the staffs of several Nickelodeon shows, including the Emmy-nominated hit Clarissa Explains it All and The Mystery Files of Shelby Woo. For preschool viewers, she penned multiple stories for the Emmy-nominated Little Bear and Oswald. She also co-wrote the critically acclaimed Rankin/Bass Christmas special, Santa, Baby! Most recently she was the Head Writer for Scholastic Entertainmentâ??s Cliffordâ??s Puppy Days, and a freelancer on Wow! Wow! Wubbzy!

          While working on a Kids WB show called Generation O! she met childrenâ??s author James Proimos, who talked her into giving childrenâ??s books a try.

          Thinking one day about Alice in Wonderland, she was struck by how pastoral the setting must seem to kids who, like her own, lived in urban surroundings. In New York City, youâ??re much more likely to fall down a manhole than a rabbit hole and, if you do, youâ??re not going to find a tea party. What you might find...? Well, thatâ??s the story of Gregor the Overlander, the first book in her five-part fantasy/war series, The Underland Chronicles.

          Her next series, The Hunger Games Trilogy, is an international bestseller.

          At present, Suzanne is at work on a picture book with James Proimos.

          She currently lives in Connecticut with her family and a pair of feral kittens they adopted from their backyard.
