    Summary

    "If the step were not being taken, if the stumbling-forward ache were not alive, the bombs would not fall, the throats would not be cut. For every bomb is proof that the spirit has not died."
    --The Grapes of Wrath

    The die is cast, the spark set, the flame growing. Zea finds herself swept up in a world she never dreamed of; Sara has been dreaming of setting this fire for years. What can a few people do against the Capitol? Much more than they ever expected.

    Summary

    "If they ever know themselves, the land will be theirs and all the gas, all the rifles in the world won't stop them."
    -The Grapes of Wrath

    The rebellion's heroes might be Victors in an Arena, conspirators in the Capitol, a shadowy district's machinations, but no rebellion survives without a thousand acts of bravery by ordinary people in extraordinary times. The prairies feed the nation, and the railroads knit it together, and when whispers in secret become networks and plans and action, Zea and Sara don't hesitate. There's no going back now.

    Summary

    Rokia sits on the armchair, while Mom sprawls on the couch. Mom tilts her head to one side. “Been seein’ you on TV,” she says. “Looks like you been havin’ fun while I been holed up here.”

    “It’s not like that,” Rokia says, sipping at her tea.

    Mom smiles. “Hey, I ain’t gonna judge,” she says, “You earned the right, nobody’s gonna say you didn’t.”

    “That’s—I don’t have a choice, Mom,” Rokia says, pulling her knees up to sit curled sideways against the arm of the chair.

    Mom sighs. “That guy Phillips, he’s not giving you shit for it, is he? Because I’ll talk to him.”

    “Mom!” Rokia snaps, then sighs, setting down her tea and scrubbing her hands over her face. “I don’t want to talk about it, okay?”

    Summary

    Phillips gets the polling data and the public opinion just like every year but as they come up to the 72nd Games it's different. He knew it wasn't going to be his choice but he'd hoped, stupidly, that they'd give his girl a little time. No such luck.

    He doesn't want her sitting in the control room watching kids die--not ever but especially not this year, not when she's still this close to it. Not when all signs point to the seventy-second being a true damn bloodbath.

    Rokia's first games as a Victor and a Mentor. Phillips' first Games juggling what the tributes need with what his girl needs. Brutus provides advice. Lyme has to talk about feelings. Beetee and Wiress provide sanctuary and distractions, and Finnick runs interference when he can.

    Rokia's just trying to make it through in one piece.

    Summary

    Beetee shoves his glasses up onto his forehead and looks under them at Wiress. "You didn't mention this before," he says, sounding put-upon.

    Wiress looks up with a bright grin. "Hi Rokia," she says, "You said you were struggling with the math so I thought a practical demonstration would be helpful."

    Beetee shakes his head and heads for the kitchen. "Rokia, would you like anything? We are apparently postponing dinner in favor of experimentation."

    Even Victors have to make themselves useful. After the Victory Tour, Beetee and Wiress teach Rokia about control systems, and Sara won't leave well enough alone.

    Summary

    The Arena is just the beginning. The beginning of life as a Victor is marked by the Victory Tour--Rokia's introduction to the Districts and the Capitol, and their introduction to her. Phillips would rather go back to the Arena than drag his girl through this, and Rokia finds herself slipping further into a Victor persona that's harder and harder to take off.

    Summary

    Phillips learned the hard way never to get his hopes up for any tribute from District Six. He's been mentoring for 23 years and has only ever come close once.

    When Rokia is Reaped for the 71st Hunger Games, the one rule--"stay alive"--is nothing new. It's just the venue that's changed, and how different is the Arena from the back alleys of District Six, anyway?
