Insurgent

Insurgent Divergent #2 by Veronica Roth Adventure Dystopian Science Fiction Review #1 * * * * * Stars (Amazing!) I absolutely love this book because it continued right on from Divergent, the first book.  When Tris and Tobias set out to fight their way back to Erudite headquarters there’s so much action and the book never leaves you bored.  It does always keep you hanging, though.  I definitely recommend reading this book, but after you … Read more
