Divergent Thinking: YA Authors on Veronica Roth's Divergent Trilogy Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Veronica Roths Divergent trilogy (Divergent, Insurgent, Allegiant) has captured the hearts and thoughts of millions of readers. In Divergent Thinking, YA authors explore even more of Tris and Tobias world, including:

• What Divergents factions have in common with one of psychologys most prominent personality models

• The biology of fear: where it comes from and how Tris and the other Dauntless are able to overcome it

• Full-page maps locating all five faction headquarters and other series landmarks in todays Chicago, based on clues from the books

• Plus a whole lot more, from why we love identity shorthand like factions to Tris trouble with honesty to the importance of choice, family, and being brave

With a dozen smart, surprising, mind-expanding essays on all three books in the trilogy, Divergent Thinking provides a companion fit for even the most Erudite Divergent fan.
