Insurgent by Veronica Roth

     Review by:  Lisa

Title:  Insurgent

Author:  Veronica Roth

Collection:  Teen Books

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.

This follow-up to Roth’s first book in the series, Divergent, continues to please.  I would recommend that if you have not yet read Divergent, be sure to pick up a copy at the library first.  Insurgent starts where the first book ends, and the first book is where the characters meet and important events take place that carry over to the second book.  Fair warning, fellow readers:  Do not pick it up unless you are prepared to keep reading it with an inability to put it down.
