This is the 2nd book in a series called Divergent.
Tris and her friends are on the run after the events of the first book, and are trying to find a safe place to hide. Only there is nowhere safe to hide, and there are enemies everywhere. So after running from place to place, never being able to fully trust anyone, Tris hands herself over, and is subjected to simulations, which end in her being sentenced to death.
Luckily Tris receives help and manages to escape, and discovers a planned insurgency has taken place, which ends with her being but in hand cuffs and labelled a traitor. But she manages to pass on some vital information that will be vital. The book ends with a new force emerging, that is promising peace and freedom, but will things work out the way Tris and her friends hope?
The next book in the series is called Allegiant.
