Insurgent

Fictional heroine Tris Prior wears the dual mantle of vulnerability and influence in this continuation of the Divergent Series, titled Insurgent (Veronica Roth, 2012).  


Societal “factions” that were created by the human survivors of a post-apocalyptic Earth have turned on one another in classic attempts to attain dominance and power.  A select few humans, the anomalies, are known as Divergents.  They are characterized by their unique physical, mental, and emotional abilities to think and behave in transcendent ways.  

They psycho-social struggles between and within the factions are classic case studies of the human condition.  Tris navigates danger in its legionic forms to affect, presumably, a future that represents a sustainable world.  

A good read, again.
