Why am I not dead? I should be dead. Katniss Everdeen, girl on fire, has survived, even though her home has been destroyed. Gale has escaped. Katniss's family is safe. Peeta has been captured by the Capitol. District 13 really does exist.
The leader of this district, President Alma Coin, along with Plutarch Heavensbee, Haymitch, Gale and several others, are planning a full-scale rebellion against the Capitol and President Snow. Katniss is convinced to be the face of the revolution in exchange for immunity for all of the victors and the right to kill Snow herself. Katniss must make videos to be shown throughout the districts and within the Capitol and is kept away from any real fighting in the rebellion. There are also videos of Peeta, who is currently in the hands of President Snow, speaking out against Katniss and the rebellion. These videos continue until Katniss and her team ends up in the middle of a real battle in one of the districts while shooting. Katniss witnesses the bombing of a hospital and is seen throughout Panem as more of a hero for attempting to help. Later in the book new video surfaces of Peeta.
