Insurgent

Book 18 of my 2014 Reading Challenge

Insurgent by Veronica Roth
Book 2 of the Divergent series

Summary (via the book jacket)
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.

My Opinion
As I read a book, I jot down notes that I can refer to when writing my review.  This is the very first book that I have zero notes on...nothing happened, positive or negative, that I found noteworthy.  I'm perfectly neutral; it didn't live up to the first book but it wasn't horrible either.  I'm curious but not overly anxious to read the last book and see how everything works out. 

Quote from the Book
"Tonight I will be honest, and selfless, and brave.  Divergent."
