So, I'm finished reading it. And whatever I would say about it might reveal spoilers, and for now I'd like to avoid that. So here's what I will say instead. I think Collins has done a terrific job outlining a political situation for teens, and I hope that it will lead teens to ask questions about politics and the political process around the world. I hope it will lead them to become more savvy instead of more accepting. And even though the Katniss-Gale-Peeta situation didn't turn out the way I thought it might (I'm not saying how... ;)), I appreciated that Collins made it understandable, and the choice was obvious at the end. It was definitely an adrenaline rush!
