Quote #10

I spread out my fingers, and the dark berries glisten in the sun. I give Peeta's hand one last squeeze as a signal, as a good-bye, and we begin counting. "One." Maybe I'm wrong. "Two." Maybe they don't care if we both die. "Three!" It's too late to change my mind. I lift my hand to m mouth, taking one last look at the world. The berries have just passed my lips when the trumpets begin to blare. (25.93)

After downing a handful of berries, Katniss and Peeta are declared victorious. How did they defeat the Gamemakers?

Quote #11

And right now, the most dangerous part of the Hunger Games is about to begin. (26.69)

Wait. What? The Games are beginning again? We thought Katniss won? What does Katniss mean?
