“As a reminder to the rebels that even the strongest among them cannot overcome the power of the Capitol, the male and female tributes will be reaped from their existing pool of victors”. I chose this quotation because it sets the rest of the events in the book. It is a crucial conflict because Katniss is going back into the games. She barely survived the first one, and suffered plenty of emotional trauma. This second trip into the arena will surely change her as a person.

“Then suddenly, as I was suggesting I take over the daily snare run, he took my face in his hands and kissed me”. This is a major conflict in the book because it shows that there is still a romantic side to Katniss and Gale’s relationship. It creates many problems for Katniss, as she is supposed to pretend to be in love with Peeta. As well, she doesn’t even know how she feels about either of them. The problem of Katniss’s decision between Peeta and Gale is the main conflict of her personal life.

“Breakout at the 75th Hunger Games” - This headline talks about how Katniss is rescued from the games at the end of the book. It determines what is going to happen in her life from then on.
