“When we last saw Tris, she was doing what she could to stop the attack by her chosen faction on the one she left behind, master minded by another faction entirely. This novel picks up pretty much where the last one ended – there’s a war going on and someone needs to make sense of it in order to stop it. Since most of the adults who would normally figure that all out were killed in the attack, it somewhat falls to Tris and her friends to sort it all out.
I was really conflicted about Tris in this one. On the one hand, I get that she’s just sixteen. But on the other, either behave like a child and sideline yourself, or get your head in the game – you can’t have both! She makes one decision after another that just seem ridiculous. And so much of the trouble she gets herself into could simply be avoided if she had only trusted a couple of people and told them what she was thinking. Instead, she is hell bent on destroying herself and seems unwilling to acknowledge that she could take the whole world down with her.
