Describe the character/person that changed the most from beginning of the book to the end of the book. Explain the change and what caused it (use back side if necessary).
The character that changed the most from beginning to end was Katniss, the main character of the book. This is shown through her innocence of not knowing that she is the mockingjay and the districts symbol of rebellion. At the beginning of the book she is completely oblivious to what is going on, and the tension that has been created between the capitol and the districts. This is all because she and Peeta have both made it out of the Hunger Games alive. When she and Peeta start the victory tour they start in Rue’s district. Both of them say way too much and it is brought to Katniss’ attention that there is tension. When she is in District 8 she figures out that the mockingjay is the symbol of rebellion. When she gets back she meets up with Gale, they end up arguing about the fact that Gale wants to rebel against the capitol and she doesn’t think it is a good idea. On reaping day it is announced that the Quarter Quell will host one previous male victor and one previous female victor. Katniss is automatically chosen because she is the only girl to win in her district. Therefore she goes to the Hunger Games once again. While she is in the arena it explodes and she is captured by a group of rebels from District 13. She learns that all of the effort in the Quell was to protect her, because she is the rallying point for the entire rebellion and the face of the revolution. At the end of the book she recognizes that she is going to have to be the mockingjay and lead the rebellion. Even though she didn’t want to rebel against the capitol in the first place.
