Why This Must Be Read: If you ever wonder what life was like for Haymitch and Effie, or Katniss and Peeta, during the early years after the war, this is a must read. It goes into Haymitch's head - not always a nice place - and shows his changing relationships with all three others, especially a beautiful, awkward, occasionally disastrous change in his relationship with Effie. Wonderful read.
