I’m not Team Gale or Team Peeta. I’m Team Katniss…the core story in the Hunger Games trilogy has less to do with who Katniss ends up with and more to do with who she is - because sometimes, in books and in life, it’s not about the romance. Sometimes, it’s about the girl

TWIST: Team Gale or Team Peeta? WS: I’m team Katniss. Everyone thinks of the book being such a romance and thinks that there’s such a huge love triangle, but I don’t think of it that way. I think of Katniss fighting for her family and being a strong character for young girls.
Let me be clear–Team Peeta. I cannot fathom how one could be any other team. Gale? I can barely acknowledge him. Peeta, on the other hand, is everything. He frosts things and bakes bread and is unconditional and unwavering in his love, and also he is very, very strong. He can throw a sack of flour, is what I’m saying. Peeta is a place of solace and hope, and he is a good kisser.
