Uncomfortable Stylists


All of the following passages from Chapter 5 show that Katniss feels unable to connect with her stylists EXCEPT


“Why do these people speak in such a high pitch? Why do their jaws barely open when they talk? Why do the ends of their sentences go up as if they’re asking a question?”


“My skin feels sore and tingling and intensely vulnerable. But I have kept my side of the bargain with Haymitch, and no objection has crossed my lips.”


“I know I should be embarrassed, but they’re so unlike people that I’m no more self-conscious than if a trio of oddly colored birds were pecking around my feet.”


“The three step back and admire their work. ‘Excellent! You almost look like a human being now!’ says Flavius, and they all laugh.”


“It’s hard to hate my prep team. They’re such total idiots. And yet, in an odd way, I know they’re sincerely trying to help me.”
