Divergent by Veronica Roth

Divergent     Review by:  Lisa

Title:  Divergent

Author:  Veronica Roth

Collection:  Teen Books

Fans of Suzanne Collins’ Hunger Games series will enjoy Divergent by Veronica Roth.  This dystopian novel takes place in a future Chicago.  Sixteen-year-old Beatrice Prior must choose among five predetermined factions to define her identity for the rest of her life, a decision made more difficult when she discovers that she is an anomaly who does not fit into any one group, and that the society she lives in is not perfect after all.

Tris (short for Beatrice) is a fully realized character, and we get to accompany her on a journey through a world that has enough similarities to our own present day to be spooky.  The book is a high-energy thriller that will keep you on the edge of your seat and guessing throughout.
