Setting
Characters
The antagonist is President Snow. He is the ruler of the capitol and the districts. He is an evil dictator.
Summary
President Snow is concerned because Katniss is a symbol of freedom to the people in the districts. President Snow needs Katniss to be controlled by the capitol, so the people in the districts won't start a rebellion. It's the 75th Quarter Quell, so President Snow sends two victors who've won the Hunger Games in previous years to go back into the arena. Katniss and Peeta go back in the arena, and Katniss knows she needs to keep Peeta alive. When they're in the arena, Katniss and Peeta pair up with three tributes. They fight for survival and finally there are only three other tributes left in the arena. They decide to make an electricity trap to try to kill the other tributes. Katniss shoots an arrow which breaks the forcefield, and allows Katniss's mentor to help sneak her out. Katniss is fustrated when she finds out Peeta got captured by the capitol and District 12 has been eliminated.
Catching Fire

Book Report
The time is set in the future in America. The Hunger Games Arena and District 12 are two main settings in this book. The Hunger Games Arena affected the story because that's where Katniss and Peeta have to fight for survival by killing people and finding food to live. District 12 is important because that's where Katniss's family is and that's where she grew up.
The protagonist is Katniss Everdeen. She is a victor from the last Hunger Games. She lives in district 12 with her mother and sister.
President Snow wants to kill Katniss because she is a symbol of hope and rebellion for the people in the districts.Katniss wanted to keep Peeta alive when they went back in the arena and keep her family from getting killed, because she loved them.
Theme
Suzanne Collins's novel Catching Fire suggests young people can be a leader and to fight for what you believe in.
Conflict
One conflict was when Katniss was fighting President Snow, because she defied the capitol. This was man vs. man. Another conflict was man vs. nature. When Katniss is in the arena, she struggles to find water.
Rewrites
If I could rewrite one part of the book, I would change the part at the end of the book. Peeta would have gotten his tracker out too, so he could have been taken out of the arena with Katniss, instead of being with the capitol.
Favorite Quotes
"I realize only one person will be damaged beyond repair if Peeta dies.Me."
This quote is my favorite because it represents Katniss's love for Peeta. It also shows that Katniss is willing to do whatever she can to keep him alive. Showing your love is more effective than saying you love someone.
"We had to save you because you're the mockingjay, Katniss. While you live, the revolution lives."
This quote is my favorite because Katniss is a symbol for the mockingjay because she is leader, and if she dies, the people won't have a leader and they would be clueless. They're trying to protect her from the capitol. Leaders can't fight danger without the help of others.
Rating
I give this book 4 stars. I recommend this book for teens who love action and romance.
Peeta and Katniss go on their victory tour after winning the 74th Hunger Games. President Snow is furious because Katniss is a symbol and leader of the rebellion. President Snow believes this will cause an uprising.
Climax
The group splits up to set up the trap. Peeta and Katniss are separated. Katniss reluctantly agrees to go with another tribute, Johanna. On the path they face trouble and Johanna rips out Katniss's tracking device.
Katniss thinks Johanna was trying to kill her, so she runs back to try to find Peeta. The lightning strikes, and Katniss shoots her arrow into the sky with a wire attached, and breaks the force field.
