Divergent by Veronica Roth
Reviewed By: K.R.
Beatrice Prior is 16 years old. That means she will have to pick a faction that she will stick with for the rest of her life in the Choosing Ceremony. But first, she has to take the aptitude test, which determines which faction would suit her. But when Beatrice finds out that she is Divergent ( which means being more than one faction) she realizes that it is a dangerous thing. Tris has to discover what being Divergent is and on the way makes some new friends and has a romantic relationship with her instructor, Four. This book is filled with romance, tragedy, and war.
Why I Picked it Up: I picked this book up because it was highly recommended to me.
Why I Finished It: I finished the book because it was there was always a cliffhanger and I wanted to see what happened next.
I’d Give this Book To: I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys reading since the book is thick. I would also recommend the book to anyone who enjoys reading about Dystopian societies. I think if you like the Hunger Games, you will like this book.
**Librarian Side Note** Did you know this book is on the 2014 Abraham Lincoln Award Nominee list? Look for the book display in the Teen Area for more books on the list! Also, the review for Insurgent (book 2 in the series) will be posted next week. And last but not least...be on the lookout for Allegiant (book 3) which is due to hit the shelves in October!
