Difficult

Cookies in the Weeds

HUNGER-EJXJ18

What does the following passage foreshadow about Katniss’ relationship with Peeta?

I quickly open the window, toss the cookies Peeta’s father gave me out of the train, and slam the glass shut. No more. No more of either of them. Unfortunately, the packet of cookies hits the ground and bursts open in a patch of dandelions by the track. I only see the image for a moment, because the train is off again, but it’s enough. (Collins, ch. 4)
