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.
Divergent was another early read for me. It was the first book in a long time that I stayed up late to finish all at once (4am reading anyone?). So when Insurgent's cover was revealed a few weeks ago, I got excited all over again! Veronica Roth promises that we will see more from the factions that we didn't get to know in Divergent. Bonus points for setting this series in my second home, Chicago!
