Music

This piece by Lorde original written and sang by Tears for Fears is tilted Everybody Wants To Rule The World. I chose this music, because Insurgent and the Divergent series is about stopping the evil in their world. It also has to do with how everyone wants power in their world how everyone wants to rule the world.

Recommendations

This book is great, but personally if you haven't read Divergent then you should read it and then continue on with the whole series Divergent, Insurgent, Allegiant, and Four. The whole series is amazing and it will get you addicted to the story. I highly recommend reading these books, especially Insurgent.
