Do you like books that have an alternate world to us? In this story you have teens who have to make a choice.They have to decide whether or not to stay in the life that they’ve always known or to do something different. During this story people’s morals and inner strength along with their outer strength is tested. Divergent reminds me of the Hunger games series because they are both alternate futures of earth and finding inner strength. What makes this book unique is the fact that the girl who seemed the weakest turns out to be more than than they could imagine. When reading this book make sure you have nothing to do after starting because I couldn’t put it down. I would give this book five out of five stars. You should read this book if you like the weakest link or underdog to come up on top
Insurgent (Book 2 of Divergent series)

When the action in a book is so good that you’re willing to lose sleep over it, you know it’s a good read. That’s how is was for me with all three books in the Divergent series. I knew I needed to put the book down and go to sleep, but I just kept thinking….I just want to read a little bit more. In Insurgent, Tris finds herself thrown into a war between the factions that divide her city. A lot of times people complain that the second book in a trilogy can be boring because it is mostly filler, but that is certainly not the case with Insurgent. The book has a well-developed story arc of its own. It kind of reminds me of the movie The Matrix Reloaded, in that way. I also think The Matrix is a good comparison to this trilogy because everything the protagonist thinks she understands about the society she is living in changes with each new installment in the series. Before reading this series, I would have told you I am not much of a fan of science fiction, but the Divergent series changed my mind! I would definitely rate this book 5 stars. If you like a book with action, surprises, and main characters you care about, then definitely read Insurgent and the rest of the books in this series. I can’t wait for the Insurgent movie!
