Insurgent by Veronica Roth

Insurgent is the second book in the Divergent series written by Veronica Roth. It picks up where the first book left off, we find Tris, Tobias, Marcus, Peter, and Caleb in the Amity compound. Tris is trying to come to grips with her parent’s death and Will’s death. Meanwhile the world is not giving her time to grieve, the Euridite faction led by Jeanine is seeking them out, Marcus and the leader of the Amity, Johanne are exchanging secrets and they know not who they can trust. When the Euridite come to the Amity compound seeking them out, they make a run for it and Marcus and Peter are separated from Tris, Caleb and Tobias. Tris, Caleb and Tobias head back to the city to find out what is going on and end up meeting up with a group of factionless people, including Edward, who Peter stabbed in the first book. We meet a person from Tobias’ past that is very important, as well as get our first look into the faction of the Candor. There are many more twists and turns to go, and Tris and Tobias are rushing toward saving the information the Euridite have that may explain the importance of the Divergent, while the factionless want to destroy all information, we also explore the thought of why would a gate to protect the factions be locked from the outside, is it keeping someone out or keeping them in? I personally can’t wait until the third book. I find Tris as a heroine, tough and gritty but still showing the signs of a young girl. Unlike Katniss of Hunger Games, she is not hiding from reality until she is jerked into it but instead is seeking the truth, exploring who she is and discovering what you think is the best for you may not be. What do you think?
