Throughout the story, Cassia represents a depressing mood because she falls in love with someone she isn't allowed to be with and then Ky gets taken away from her so she has to embark on a journey to find him. For example, on page 229, Cassia says “I want to reach out and grab his hand and hold it to me, right over my heart, right where it aches the most.

Unlike the other two examples of acts of rebellion, this one Katniss did not commit. The people from district 12 gave this salute to show their appreciation to Katniss after volunteering for her sister. The reason this is an act of rebellion is because it is actually valuing the human life instead of acting like she is just a part of their game. That is the last of many examples of rebellion from the book that I chose to put in
