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.

"This is one fast-paced read that sticks in your head for days after you put it down, both because of its video-game-like scenes and its thought-provoking premise." --Hollywood Crush, MTV.com MTV
PRAISE FOR DIVERGENT:"You'll be up all night with Divergent, a brainy thrill-ride of a novel." BookPage
"With brisk pacing and lavish flights of imagination . . . Divergent clearly has thrills, but it also movingly explores a more common adolescent anxiety-the painful realization that coming into one's own sometimes means leaving family behind, both ideologically and physically." New York Times Book Review
"The depth and richness of Beatrice herself make this an accessible option for both sci-fi buffs and realistic fiction fans." Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
"This gritty, paranoid world is built with careful details and intriguing scope. Fans snared by the ratcheting suspense will be unable to resist speculating on their own factional allegiance. Guaranteed to fly off the shelves." Kirkus Reviews
“The next big thing.” Rolling Stone
“Roth knows how to write. The novels love story, intricate plot, and unforgettable setting work in concert to deliver a novel that will rivet fans of the first book.” Publishers Weekly
“In this addictive sequel to the acclaimed Divergent,a bleak post-apocalyptic Chicago collapses into all-out civil war. Another spectacular cliffhanger. Anyone who read the first book was dying for this one months ago; theyll hardly be able to wait for the concluding volume.” Kirkus Reviews
“Insurgent explores several critical themes, including the importance of family and the crippling power of grief at its loss. A very good read.” School Library Journal
