With a strong female protagonist at the heart of the action-packed adventure, The Hunger Games has resonated with readers of all ages.

Now, as the final film of the series, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2, hits our screens, we’re celebrating Katniss Everdeen with the 10 best quotes from all three books that highlight her strength, heroism and revolutionary spirit:

Tonight. After the reaping, everyone is supposed to celebrate. And a lot of people do, out of relief that their children have been spared for another year. But at least two families will pull their shutters, lock their doors, and try to figure out how they will survive the painful weeks to come.

(The Hunger Games: Catching Fire)

I stand there, feeling broken and small, thousands of eyes trained on me. There’s a long pause. Then, from somewhere in the crowd, someone whistles Rue’s four-note mocking-jay tune. The one that meant safety in the arena.

(The Hunger Games: Catching Fire)

“If I had just killed myself with those berries, none of this would’ve happened. Peeta could have come home and lived, and everyone else would have been safe, too.”
