Mockingjay is the third and final book in the Hunger Games trilogy by Suzanne Collins. The book picks up where the previous book, Catching Fire, left off, with the main character, Katniss Everdeen, being rescued from the Hunger Games arena and brought to District 13, a secret underground district that has been in hiding from the Capitol.
District 13 is led by President Coin, who is determined to defeat the Capitol and bring about the end of the Hunger Games. Katniss is hesitant to join the rebellion, but eventually agrees to be the "mockingjay," the symbol of the rebellion, and to make propaganda videos for the rebellion.
As the rebellion gains momentum, the Capitol begins to fight back with even more brutality. Katniss becomes increasingly disillusioned with the rebellion and its leaders, particularly President Coin, who seems to be just as power-hungry as the Capitol.
Katniss also struggles with her feelings for Peeta, who has been captured by the Capitol and brainwashed into hating Katniss. Despite this, Katniss remains determined to rescue Peeta and bring him back to his former self.
The final showdown between the rebellion and the Capitol takes place in the ruins of the Capitol itself. Katniss and her team are able to defeat the Capitol's forces, but at a great cost. Many of Katniss' friends and allies are killed, including President Coin.
In the aftermath of the war, Katniss is left to rebuild her life and come to terms with the trauma she has experienced. She and Peeta are able to heal their relationship and start a family together, but Katniss is left with the weight of the rebellion on her shoulders, and the knowledge that she will always be the "mockingjay," a symbol of hope for the people of Panem.
