One choice can transform you - or it can destroy you. But every choice has consequences, and as unrest surges in the factions all around her, Tris Prior must continue trying to save those she loves - and herself - while grappling with haunting questions of grief and forgiveness, identity and loyalty, politics and love.
Tris's initiation day should have been marked by celebration and victory with her chosen faction; instead, the day ended with unspeakable horrors. War now looms as conflict between the factions and their ideologies grows. And in times of war, sides must be chosen, secrets will emerge, and choices will become even more irrevocable - and even more powerful. Transformed by her own decisions but also by haunting grief and guilt, radical new discoveries, and shifting relationships, Tris must fully embrace her Divergence, even if she does not know what she may lose by doing so.
New York Times bestselling author Veronica Roth's much-anticipated second book of the dystopian Divergent series is another intoxicating thrill ride of a story, rich with hallmark twists, heartbreaks, romance, and powerful insights about human nature.
Why I want this book: OK, so maybe asking why I want this book is a dumb question because anyone who's read Divergent can understand why I want Insurgent so freaking badly! I wasn't sure if I was going to even like Divergent when I first bought it last year because at that point the only dystopian I'd really read was The Hunger Games. But I said what the heck, I really want to read it and thank goodness I did, because Divergent's now one my top favorite books of all time. I am planning to reread it as well before diving into Insurgent next month when it's released.
