“This is a very catchy little page turner. I don’t read a lot of Young
Adult fiction — just what my siblings recommend and love. My brother
turned me on to Divergent
and it is really a great take on dystopia. It’s compelling to read about
this young girl trying to have a complex personality in a world that
divides everyone into five separate personalities factions. Tris, the
main character, is a really inspiring female hero.”
This first book in Veronica Roth's #1 New York Times bestselling Divergent trilogy is the novel the inspired the major motion picture starring Shailene Woodley, Theo James, and Kate Winslet. This dystopian series set in a futuristic Chicago has captured the hearts of millions of teen and adult readers. Perfect for fans of the Hunger Games and Maze Runner series, Divergent and its sequels, Insurgent and Allegiant, are the gripping story of a dystopian world transformed by courage, self- sacrifice, and love. Fans of the Divergent movie will find the book packed with just as much emotional depth and exhilarating action as the film, all told in beautiful, rich language. The paperback edition includes exciting bonus materials: an author Q&A, a discussion guide, a Divergent playlist, faction manifestos, quiz questions, writing tips, and a peek of the second book in the trilogy. One choice can transform you. Beatrice Prior's society is divided into five factions-Candor (the honest), Abnegation (the selfless), Dauntless (the brave), Amity (the peaceful), and Erudite (the intelligent). Beatrice must choose between staying with her Abnegation family and transferring factions. Her choice will shock her community and herself. But the newly christened Tris also has a secret, one she's determined to keep hidden, because in this world, what makes you different makes you dangerous.
“A memorable, unpredictable journey from which it is nearly impossible to turn away.”—
-Publishers Weekly (starred review)
“You’ll be up all night with Divergent, a brainy thrill-ride of a novel.”
