Quote #10

It's an awful lot to take in, this elaborate plan in which I was a piece, just as I was meant to be a piece in the Hunger Games. Used without consent, without knowledge. At least in the Hunger Games, I knew I was being played with. (27.30)

It's never good to feel like you're being played, and Katniss has certainly had her share of that feeling in the Games. Now she finds out that she's been used as a pawn in two different games at the same time: the Quarter Quell and the rebels' plan to overthrow the Capitol.
