    This is the book that every single moment of The Hunger Games and Catching Fire has been leading up to. The big finale. This book is Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins. The final installment to The Hunger Games series. So, does it live up to the hype? Yes...and no. This book takes place about a month after Catching Fire and the location is a spoiler to people who haven't read that book. The protagonist of this book is Katniss Everdeen who is now involuntarily the face of the rebellion against the capitol and the antagonist, President Snow. Katniss has barely survived the Hunger Games twice, but each time she has broke the rules to make it out alive which has made her the face of the rebellion against the capitol. The capitol wants nothing more than to kill Katniss Everdeen and end the rebellion. So, Katniss and her allies must go to war against the capitol and kill president snow to win the war. That is one of the major conflicts in this book. Another one is the very uneasy relationship between Katniss and pretty much everyone around her. One last conflict is whether Katniss will become the mockingjay or not. The symbol of hope for the rebellion. Katniss attempts to solve this problem by shutting everyone out, but that doesn't work once the war starts. Katniss must decide. Will she be the mockingjay? Will she kill President Snow? This book has a slow start, but then gives you enough action for 3 books. A lot of important characters die. This book has twists at every turn and is unpredictable. You never know who will die and the ending will surprise anyone. I recommend this book to anyone who has read Catching Fire and The Hunger Games. Mockingjay is a good conclusion to a great series.

    Have you ever felt left out and like you can't do anything about it? Like you can't control your life? That's how Tim Howard felt in the beginning of this great book called The Keeper by Tim Howard with Ali Benjamin. Now, this isn't a story about how no matter what happens, Tim Howard will always come out on top. It's not a story about Tim Howard saving every single shot that comes his way. This book is real life. This shows how life isn't always sunshine and rainbows. Especially for Tim Howard. You see, Tim Howard has a disease called TS,(Tourette syndrome.). That makes the protagonist and antagonist of this book, Tim Howard, because when he was a kid, he always tried to hide his disease and he was always fighting with himself, trying to not let the disease control him. That's one conflict in this book that gets resolved by Tim as an adult becoming open about his Tourette syndrome, so kids around the world can have an easier time dealing with it than he did. Another conflict is when Tim gets benched for one mistake on Manchester United and he doesn't think that's fair, so he goes to play for Everton as the starting goalie. The conflict gets resolved in a game pitting Manchester United against Everton, but you'll have to read the book to see how it gets resolved. This book shows around a 35-40 year portion of Tim Howard's still continuing life. If you love soccer like I do or even if you don't this book has an amazing and inspiring story, because there's just as many bad moments in his life as good which makes this book real, true and a big recommend.
