P IS FOR PEETA

P IS FOR PEETA MELLARK:

I am so TEAM PEETA.  I love that he is such a sensitive character. Caring and loyal. Some might think him as a weak character, but I don't see it that way. Peeta is strong in character and values!

What makes Peeta such a memorable character is his back story.  He's abused by his mother, bakes and decorates cakes in a district where such things are luxuries no one can afford, and he sees himself as no special.

There is this one moment with Peeta and Katniss in the cave that defines him to me.  The two of them are talking about their relationship.  Peeta says, "I don't really have any competition here in the arena.  And Katniss replies, "You don't have competition anywhere." 

I love that dialogue because Katniss is right.  He is a good guy and no one can really compete with his goodness.  And although I love Gale, Katniss needs someone who can soften her.  Someone who will show her the silver lining int he clouds.  That character is Peeta!
