Divergent by: Veronica Roth

I read the book Divergent and it is a dystopian fiction. If you have ever seen The Hunger Games movie then they are similar. This book is about Beatrice Prior who lives in the future city of Chicago and the town is divided into five factions; the honest, the brave, the selfless, the peaceful and the intelligent. At the age of 16 you must choose which faction in which to live. The story follows Beatrice who has to take a placement test to determine in which faction she can live. On testing day she learns she is known as something called divergent and that is something you do not want to be because it can get you killed. Beatrice chooses a new faction and we see all the trouble she goes through with leaving and moving her life somewhere else. This book will keep you on the edge of your seat and will keep you guessing at every turn. In every chapter there is something you will not expect. This book has politics, romance, mystery and action. Divergent is a book that talks a lot about choices and how these choices affect one’s future and you need to be careful with the choices you make. I think you should read this book; first, before the movie comes out and second, because readers will like the story because it has a little bit of everything. This is a good book that won’t take you long to read and will keep you guessing.
