Are you brave enough to sacrifice your own life for others? I think the theme of the Insurgent is Bravery because the main character Tris showed bravery in multiple situations in the book. Wroth writes, “I believe Jeanine Matthews wanted to see me,” (320). This quote shows bravery because in order for them to plan out their attack on Erudite, one person had to go find out Erudites plan. And Tris decided to risk her own life to save thousands of lives being controlled.
“I shot Will,” (151). This was another quote showing Tris’s bravery, because she did not have to tell other people she killed Will and cause Christina to hate her, but she decides to tell others because she did not want to hide this secret anymore. “I don’t want to die” (383). I’m not saying that Tris is not scared of anything. Just like everyone, even me, we all have fears. When I was 8 years old, my family was watching a scary movie. I was very scared because the back ground music made the movie very scary, cause you never know when the scary person pops out. When Tris was afraid of being killed by the death serum, Peter helped her have less pressure. Over many different situations, I think Tris becomes braver and stronger. To sum up , I think Veronica Wroth’s message is “Bravery can be built up”
