SummaryAdd a Summary
Katniss hopes that now that she has returned back home to District 12 everything will return to normal. But she very soon realizes that things will ever be the same ever again. The berries she once thought were her escape have now planted seeds of rebellion in the districts against the Capitol. Peeta feels betrayed, Gale keeps her at a cold distance and Katniss finds herself lost, confused and alone. Their lives are further complicated with the wildcard of the 75th Hunger Games when it is announced that the tributes will be chosen from the existing pool of victors. Katniss consequently goes into the arena; however, this time she has a very different mindset. She vows to protect Peeta’s life and ensure that he wins no matter the cost. But it soon becomes very obvious that the odds most certainly are not in Katniss’ favor.
Katniss and Peeta won the annual hunger games and now they must try to survive in another place.
Katniss Everdeen had survived the Hunger Games along with her "boyfriend" Peeta Mellark! She hopes that once she returns home, her life can get back to normal. But things will never be the same for Katniss ever again. Prim is more adult than tween, Gale holds her at an icy distance, and Peeta pretty much ignores her. While living in her new home in the Victor's Village, Katniss learns about the "change" in this year's Hunger Games. Instead of having a new boy and girl tribute from each district compete in the Games, a boy and girl victor from each district will be submitted into one big battle to see which victor survives. Katniss enters the Hunger Games devoted to protecting Peeta's life rather than hers, because this time, there will be only one victor. Katniss may have survived the last Hunger Games, but this time, the odds are most definitely not in her favor.
Katniss and Peeta have come out of the hunger games alive. katniss must convince all of Panem that she loves Peeta when she goes on the victory tour. But president Snow annouces the third Quarter Quell a fight to the death between a female and male victor of the hunger games of each district and Katniss know shes going back into the arena, and this time she must save Peeta.
Katniss and Peeta must once again try to survive in a newly connived arena in the next year's Hunger Games. Love, betrayal, and hurt...amazing book!!
the journey continues as katniss everdeen and peeta continue the survival to fight in the arena....
Katniss Everdeen is returning home after winning the 74th annual Hunger Games with her "boyfriend" Peeta Mellark. They visit the other districts on a victory tour, and each make speeches about the fallen tributes. When they finally arrive home, Katniss meets two girls from district 8 planning on going to a bombed district, district 13, where it is said survivors live underground. On the 75th annual Hunger Games on the Quarter Quell, tributes who have the Hunger Games in the past are chosen to participate, instead of all new tributes. Katniss is chosen by default and Peeta volunteers for Haymitch when he is chosen. In the beach-like arena, Katniss discovers it is set like a clock. When the Hunger Games is finally over, she discovers that her home, district 12, has been bombed and destroyed.
The book "Catching Fire" is about katniss and peeta and how their life changes after they get back from the Hunger Games as the new victors .
Katniss Everdeen and Peeta Mellark believe they are finally safe from the Hunger Games, after winning. Until, the president warns Katniss, that her act of desperation to save Peeta's life during the previous games, has led to uprisings in many of the districts and that she must quiet these rebellions during her victory tour. Inadvertently, she and Peeta are achieving just the opposite when they find out that, for the 75th Hunger Games (The 3rd Quarter Quell), they will need to return, along with a man and woman victor from the other districts. They, once again need to fight to stay alive in a new arena with all new enemies.
The book that I have finished is called "Catching Fire" by Suzanne Collins a science fiction/fantasy book. The main idea of this book is that in the begging Katniss had met the president Mr.Snow had a talk or meeting. Katniss and Peeta had been resubmitted into the hunger games for the second time. During the hunger game Peeta got hurt and Katniss is trying to rescue Peeta from dying from the poisonous gas and the injury that Peeta had. At the end someone had died from district 12... (*I am not trying to mess up the ending!).

"Do you have any secrets worth my time?" -Finnick Odair
“I'm going to wake Peeta," I say. "No, wait," says Finnick. "Let's do it together. Put our faces right in front of his." Well, there's so little opportunity for fun left in my life, I agree. We position ourselves on either side of Peeta, lean over until our faces are inches frim his nose, and give him a shake. "Peeta. Peeta, wake up," I say in a soft, singsong voice. His eyelids flutter open and then he jumps like we've stabbed him. "Aa!" Finnick and I fall back in the sand, laughing our heads off. Every time we try to stop, we look at Peeta's attempt to maintain a disdainful expression and it sets us off again.”
Remember who your enemy is - Haymitch
So girl on fire, what secrets do you have for me? -Finnick
"May the odds be ever in your favor."
"On the 75th anniversary, as a reminder to the rebels that even the strongest among them cannot overcome the power of the Capitol, the male and female tributes will be reaped from their existing pool of victors."
"It means we're on ur side"
"Tick tock" said Wiress "Yes tick tock the areas a clock" says Katniss
