Book Review: Insurgent - Veronica Roth

Insurgent (Divergent, #2)
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.

4/5 stars (really liked it)
Tris (Beatrice) is really growing as a person in this book.  She is getting over the grief of losing her parents and having her former faction destroyed.  Four (Tobias) is also dealing with issues of his own.  We also meet other Divergent people.  I cannot say much for fear of giving too much away.  But I liked this book better than the first one.  We get to know other characters, yet we are left with questions.  The ending was such a great cliffhanger!  I can't wait for the next one.
