Sorry I haven't posted in a while!!!!
By Veronica Roth
The book Divergent takes place in a futuristic Chicago where there are five factions. Each faction was formed to prevent war.
The factions are:
Abnegation are the selfless. They wear gray clothes and look the same to prevent drawing attention to themselves. Amity are the peaceful. They believe they should have no leader and think it is okay to deceive if it will keep the waters calm. Candor are the honest. They believe that you must tell the truth no matter what. Thinking that the truth is black and white, that’s what they wear. Dauntless are the brave. They wear black, tattoos, and have piercings. Daredevil stunts are their favorite. Erudite are the intelligent. They believe knowledge is the key.
Beatrice and her brother Caleb are sixteen years old. That means today is the aptitude test. They will find out which faction they most belong in, and choose it or another faction during the choosing ceremony. Beatrice takes the test and has three factions available. This means she is Divergent. She has an aptitude for Abnegation, Dauntless, and Erudite. What will she choose? Read the book to find out!
This book is highly recommended for YA readers who like futuristic books with adventure and twists.
Warning! This book included the deaths of many beloved characters.
