One choice can destroy you. Veronica Roth's second #1 New York Times bestseller continues the dystopian thrill ride that began in Divergent.
A hit with both teen and adult readers, Insurgent is the action-packed, emotional adventure that inspired the major motion picture starring Shailene Woodley, Theo James, Ansel Elgort, and Octavia Spencer.
As war surges in the factions of dystopian Chicago all around her, Tris attempts to save those she loves—and herself—while grappling with haunting questions of grief and forgiveness, identity and loyalty, politics and love.
And don't miss The Fates Divide, Veronica Roth's powerful sequel to the bestselling Carve the Mark!
Roth knows how to write. So even though this second book of the trilogy that began with Divergent feels like a necessary bridge between the haunting story she created in book one and the hinted-at chaos of book three, readers will be quick to forgive. Tris, reeling from the loss of her parents and guilt-ridden over having shot her best friend, must escape the Erudite faction s horrific takeover by fleeing first to Amity and then Candor. Reluctantly, she joins forces with the factionless to defeat Erudite. As stubborn and self-destructive as ever, Tris butts heads with Tobias and tests everyone s (perhaps even readers ) patience. Roth keeps every chapter action-packed, moving Tris tantalizingly close to learning the secret her parents were fighting to unleash. The author has a subtle way of pulling readers into a scene ( The outside air.... smells green, the way a leaf does when you tear it in half ), and the novel s love story, intricate plot, and unforgettable setting work in concert to deliver a novel that will rivet fans of the first book. Ages 14 up.

Divergent was my fav book of all time over the hunger games!!! Veronica hurry hurry! I love Tobias and tris ughhhhh I can't wait!!!!
The best part of Insurgent is that is packed with action scenes that move the story along while keeping the audience engaged. However, there are the times in between that drag and feel almost repetitive in the description of the emotional conflicts Tris experiences. One of the few reasons I continued with this story is because it spikes my curiosity in almost an Erudite nature. The last chapter only increases that curiosity, so although it might not be an exceptional read (see James Dashner's The Maze Runner) it is entertaining one.
Cant wait until Insurgent comes out! My favorite series after Hunger Games! Hurry Veronica Roth!
