             Amazon Summary-
Beatrice "Tris" Prior has reached the fateful age of sixteen, the stage at which teenagers in Veronica Roth's dystopian Chicago must select which of five factions to join for life. Each faction represents a virtue: Candor, Abnegation, Dauntless, Amity, and Erudite. To the surprise of herself and her selfless Abnegation family, she chooses Dauntless, the path of courage. Her choice exposes her to the demanding, violent initiation rites of this group, but it also threatens to expose a personal secret that could place her in mortal danger. Veronica Roth's young adult Divergent trilogy launches with a captivating adventure about love and loyalty playing out under most extreme circumstances.


When I first started reading this I was like YES! Another dystopian book! I bet it will be full of action and awesomeness like The Hunger Games! I was a little peeved that it resembled The Hunger Games but hey thats how the trend goes. There is the Amity, the kind, thoughtful, bright. There is the Erudite, the smart, scholar, planner. There is the Candor, the truthful, pointblank, curious. There is the Dauntless, the brave, fiery, ready to fight. Then There is Tris from the Abnegation, the boring, selfless, invisible. Abnegation takes of the most positions in the counsel becuase of their selflessness towards the factionless. Tris is tired of the constant boring life of never getting to look in mirrors, dressing in grey, oh and this one other problem. She got her test results and they are dangerous. Divergent? What does this mean? Tris is stuck in between Dauntless and Abnegation! Being Dauntless means jumping off 10 story buildings, fighting until unconsiousness, beating out her opponents, being called stiff, and getting attacked in the night. Abnegation means boring, boring, boring. What do you think she chooses?
Read this book!
