Divergent by Veronica Roth
Imagine that you have one choice to make. When you’re 16, you must decide which group you will live among for the rest of your life. Choose correctly, or you may be shunned. This is the choice that Tris Prior must make. Does she belong with Candor, Abnegation, Dauntless, Amity, or Erudite? Aptitude tests help determine which group Tris belongs in, but what if they’re inconclusive? She’s given a different label, but one she must never tell anyone.
I enjoyed this book. It was a good mix of action and adventure with just a little bit of romance mixed in. The setting is future Chicago, and I enjoyed reading about Chicago in a different light. If you like dystopian fiction, give Divergent a try. This is the first book in a trilogy, and if the other books in this trilogy are as good as Divergent, we’ll be entertained for a long time.
