Title: Divergent

Author: Veronica Roth

Publisher: HarperCollins

Available: NOW

Source: Library

About the book:
Beatrice (Trys) is turning 16 and she must choose her faction. Each faction represents a virtue, her original faction was selfless, but Trys never saw herself as selfless and her test results came back Divergent. The trouble being, Divergent is not a faction and her test monitor told her never to reveal that about herself. She chooses the path of courage and finds herself in mortal danger and in love.
My take:
Divergent is a dystopian (sort of like Hunger Games). The difference being, I actually liked Divergent better! I think because there was much more action. There have been a surplus of divergent novels the last few years, but this is one of the better ones. It's a huge book, but really didn't take me long to devour it flew along so darn fast! There are a few plot problems that will probably be answered in the next book (hopefully), and I won't state them here because they would spoil the book for you. This is a YA science fiction...but Roth herself is a Christian and brought God into the book. Not alot..but enough to know he's there. If you don't like gore...I'd step away tho'. If you are a dystopian fan..pick it up..I noticed a trend in's either hated or loved.. which are you?
About the author:
She finds herself in the Dauntless faction because she values courage and she wears a lot of black. To see for yourself a little more about Veronica Roth, visit her blog!
