Beatrice "Tris" Prior has reached the fateful age of sixteen, the stage at which teenagers in Veronica Roth's dystopian Chicago must select which of five factions to join for life. Each faction represents a virtue: Candor, Abnegation, Dauntless, Amity, and Erudite. To the surprise of herself and her selfless Abnegation family, she chooses Dauntless, the path of courage. Her choice exposes her to the demanding, violent initiation rites of this group, but it also threatens to expose a personal secret that could place in mortal danger. Veronica Roth's young adult Divergent trilogy launches with a captivating adventure about love and loyalty playing out under most extreme circumstances.
May cannot get here soon enough!!!! This book was epic and unforgettable.
It reminded me a bit of Hunger Games, but more legendary and awesome. The storyline and the characters were so interesting and I couldn't put it down.
Tris is by far one of the coolest heroines of all the books I've ever read. Four was mysterious and dark. I normally hate cliffhangers, but Roth did this book right! I want to know what happens with Four's father and the Candor jerk. I want to know more about Divergence. I want to know more about everything!
