Divergent Thinking: YA Authors on Veronica Roth's Divergent Trilogyby Leah Wilson
Synopses & Reviews
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.
