“Insurgent” by Veronica Roth, (and the Library’s Teen Films July 1 – 7)

Insurgent

Insurgent picks up where Divergent left off….right in the middle of the action. From start to finish, this sequel packs the same kind of punch as the first book. In the not-too-distant future, the city of Chicago has been divided into five distinct factions. All are separate but equally important to society…until one faction tries to destroy the others. 16-year-old Tris Prior is fighting alongside others who want to stop a war from escalating. She feels a strong allegiance to several factions. But overwhelming guilt and sorrow for things in her past cloud Tris’s judgment until she can no longer trust her own instincts. With death and destruction all around her, Tris has to summon bravery, reason, and humanity….qualities she is not so sure she possesses. Now she must decide how to fight this war—as an insider or an outsider.

A powerful and worthy sequel.
