disharmonious asked: I got The Girl Who Was On Fire for Christmas and I absolutely loved your essay.
Thank you! I have a rule about essay anthologies: I only sign up to write an essay if I feel SO INCREDIBLY STRONGLY about a topic that I could (and have) ranted about it for thirty minutes at a time. And the idea that Katniss is a complex character who is far more notable for what she does than for who she ultimately chooses romantically was something very close to my heart.
Sometimes, in life and in books, it’s not about the romance. Sometimes, it’s about the girl. -Team Katniss, The Girl Who Was on Fire
