Book Review by Trevor: Divergent by Veronica Roth
Divergent by Veronica Roth is an interesting and intense dystopian book (soon to be movie), which takes place in future Chicago. The story is about a girl named Beatrice, who lives in a society based on five factions. Each faction is an isolated group, trying to follow one of the following traits: bravery, selflessness, friendship, intelligence, or honesty, often to the extreme.
Beatrice lives in Abnegation, the faction that follows selflessness. As she nears her 16th birthday, she is given a choice, to choose if she should join another faction, and betray and abandon her family and friends, or to stay in Abnegation, where she doesn’t fit.
The book is a definite must-read, filled with lots of action, suspense, and a love story. Let’s hope the movie does well.
