Annie/Finnick, spoilers for all three books
They say that the children of District 4 learn to swim before they can walk. It’s not quite the truth, but it isn’t that far from it, either.
Annie’s three years old when she learns how to swim. She likes it best when she floats in the water, her hair streaming around her face like seaweed. She wonders what would happen if she just floated away forever.
Annie learns about broken promises when she is six.
When the other little girl next door said she’d give her back her doll the next day, she didn’t.
When her Aunt Edna said she could have the last piece of pie, Mama said she couldn’t.
When Papa promised to come back safe from his fishing trip, he didn’t.
