Games to District 13 (The Hunger Games are an annual competition between the residents of the 12 districts of Panem. It is a fight to the death, the last person alive wins (Katniss and Peeta competed in two straight Hunger Games)). Peeta was captured by the capitol. At first Katniss completely ignores what she has to do. Then she agrees to become the Mockingjay, the public face of the rebellion. As time passes she records various "propos" to promote the rebel cause to the people of Panem. Later on after Peeta calls for a cease-fire in the war, the rebels devise a plan to take him from the capitol. They rescue him but he is brainwashed and tries to kill Katniss. When the rebels launch an attack on the capitol itself, Peeta and Katniss are sent in to battle together. When Katniss arrives at President Snow's house she sees her sister Prim get killed by a bomb. Katniss is recovered and kept on pain medication for several days. The rebels have won the war and President Coin has saved President Snow for Katniss. At the execution she kills Coin rather than Snow because she know it is the right thing to do. She is sent back to her original home in District 12 where she grows up to marry Peeta.
