Insurgent by Veronica Roth: Sneaky Peeky Sunday

I just finished reading Divergent, the first book in the trilogy, and am now reading the second book that's Insurgent by Veronica Roth.

Here's the page I am on right now.....

'.......what they were planning - was he lying?

He must have been. I press the heel of my hand to my forehead. My brother chose faction over blood. There has to be a reason. She must have threatened him. Or coerced him in some way.


 The door opens. I don't open or lift my eyes.

 'Stiff.' It is Peter. Of course.

 'Yes.' When I let my hand fall from my face, a lock of hair falls with it. I look at it from the corner of my eye. My hair has never been this greasy before.

 Peter sets a bottle of water next to the bed, and a sandwich. The thought of eating it nauseates me.

 'You brain-dead?' he asks.

 'Don't think so.'

 'Don't be so sure.'

 'Ha-ha,' I say. How long have I been asleep? '

 'About a day. I'm supposed to escort you to the showers.'

 'If you say something about how badly I need one,' I say tiredly, 'I will poke you in the eye.'

 The room spins when I lift my head, but I manage to put my legs over the edge of the bed and stand. Peter and I start down the hallway. When we turn round the corner to get to the bathroom, though, there are people at the end of the hallway.

 One of them is Tobias. I can see where our paths will...............'
