Synopsis: 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.
Why?: I read Divergent and loved it, so it only made sense to read the sequel after Paul bought it!
Expectations: I expect this book to pick up right where Divergent left off, and to continue to tell how Tris and Tobias fight against Erudite, and to deal with the consequences of the simulation in Divergent. I think that the idea of "Divergent" people will be more explained, and more characters will come out as "Divergent." I expect it to be pretty epic!
Judging a book by its cover: The cover has a tree, which is the symbol for Amity. I think that Amity will be very important here. Maybe Tris and Tobias form an alliance with Amity? Maybe Amity fights against them?
