Divergent first book in a three book series with 7 spin off stories. Written by Veronica Roth.
“In Beatrice Prior’s dystopian Chicago world, society is divided into five factions, each dedicated to the cultivation of a particular virtue–Candor (the honest), Abnegation (the selfless), Dauntless (the brave), Amity (the peaceful), and Erudite (the intelligent). On an appointed day of every year, all sixteen-year-olds must select the faction to which they will devote the rest of their lives. For Beatrice, the decision is between staying with her family and being who she really is–she can’t have both. So she makes a choice that surprises everyone, including herself.During the highly competitive initiation that follows, Beatrice renames herself Tris and struggles alongside her fellow initiates to live out the choice they have made. But Tris also has a secret, one she’s kept hidden from everyone because she’s been warned it can mean death. And as she discovers unrest and growing conflict that threaten to unravel her seemingly perfect society, she also learns that her secret might help her save those she loves . . . or it might destroy her.“
Em: OMG where do I start? I really enjoyed reading Divergent. Veronica Roth is a talented author who knows how to captivate her readers with her ability to write thrilling content like Divergent. While reading Divergent I could hardly put the book down, with such a well written, advent full story it left me hungry for more! Loved Loved LOVED this book! all I can say is… I’ll never be able to look at butter knives in the same way after reading this! 😉
Lib: 10 outta 10! From the minute I picked up Divergent I was totally sucked in! It has anything you could possible want in a book. The sad moments are utterly heart breaking, but the funny ones make you laugh out load and there are oh so many cliff hangers that never leave you disappointed . I really couldn’t recommend this book more. DEFINITELY a must read for anyone looking in the YA Category.
