Insurgent, by Veronica Roth
2012 Book 83: Insurgent, by Veronica Roth (6/7/2012)
Reason for Reading: Second book in the Divergent trilogy
My Review 4.5/5 stars
The second book in the Divergent trilogy picks up almost immediately after the end of the first book. Tris explores the boundaries of friendship and betrayal as she fights to reestablish balance in her torn-up world. Like Divergent, Insurgent isn't JUST an exciting dystopic novel with unique world-building and enticing protagonists, it is also a deeper book which will make the reader see areas of grey the in the choices the characters make. It's a suspenseful, fun, and thoughtful book. I definitely recommend it to anyone who reads dystopic YA lit.
