Insurgent by Veronica Roth

Quick Summary
After breaking the simulation that her faction was put under, Tris Prior and her friends find themselves a brief rest, but are soon forced back into battle as factions splinter and sides are chosen. Tris finds herself become more and more ensnared in a conspiracy that goes far deeper than she could have ever imagined. What is the information that the Abnegation faction holds, and why are other factions so desperate to make sure that it doesn’t see the light of day? Tris’ need to know what her parents died for might just be her undoing as she struggles to learn the truth-not just about her current situation, but about her entire life.

My Thoughts
Good, though not as good as I found Divergent. Too much focus on her relationship issues and not enough on the real problem, which was why it was so important to subdue the factions, and why the Abnegation leaders were going to release the information that could change everything. The whole Divergent angle felt a little sloppy in this one, as were the weird superstitions about those that happened to be so. I mean, really, worrying about loyalty that a Divergent person might feel towards their faction when over half of said faction has already defected seems ridiculous – especially considering that the defectors weren’t the Divergent ones. Also, all the angst between Tris and Tobias felt forced. Their romance really didn’t work for me this time around, and I don’t know why. In the end, I found myself enjoying the side characters far more than I did Tris or Tobias.
