Publisher Comments:

Paperback features over fifty pages of bonus materials, including a sneak peek of Insurgent, an author Q&A, a discussion guide, a Divergent playlist, faction manifestos, and more!

In Beatrice Prior's dystopian Chicago world, society is divided into five factions, each dedicated to the cultivation of a particular virtue — Candor (the honest), Abnegation (the selfless), Dauntless (the brave), Amity (the peaceful), and Erudite (the intelligent). On an appointed day of every year, all sixteen-year-olds must select the faction to which they will devote the rest of their lives. For Beatrice, the decision is between staying with her family and being who she really is — she can't have both. So she makes a choice that surprises everyone, including herself.

During the highly competitive initiation that follows, Beatrice renames herself Tris and struggles alongside her fellow initiates to live out the choice they have made. Together they must undergo extreme physical tests of endurance and intense psychological simulations, some with devastating consequences. As initiation transforms them all, Tris must determine who her friends really are — and where, exactly, a romance with a sometimes fascinating, sometimes exasperating boy fits into the life she's chosen. But Tris also has a secret, one she's kept hidden from everyone because she's been warned it can mean death. And as she discovers unrest and growing conflict that threaten to unravel her seemingly perfect society, she also learns that her secret might help her save those she loves... or it might destroy her.

Veronica Roth is the New York Times bestselling author of Divergent, the first in a trilogy of dystopian thrillers filled with electrifying decisions, heartbreaking betrayals, stunning consequences, and unexpected romance.

Review:

"You'll be up all night with Divergent, a brainy thrill-ride of a novel." BookPage

Review:

"A memorable, unpredictable journey from which it is nearly impossible to turn away." Publishers Weekly (starred review)

Review:

"Divergent clearly has thrills, but it also movingly explores a more common adolescent anxiety — the painful realization that coming into one's own sometimes means leaving family behind, both ideologically and physically." The New York Times

Synopsis:

One choice decides your friends

One choice defines your beliefs

One choice determines your loyalties — forever

One choice can transform you

SnowRaven, December 12, 2014 (view all comments by SnowRaven)
This is a dystopian young adult novel in which when a young person turns 16, this must choose which faction they will join. Each of the five factions have their own unique qualities, and when the person chooses their faction, they must go through initiation and pass, otherwise they will remain factionless for the rest of their lives. The main character is Beatrice, who has an inner battle about whether she wants to stay with her family in the selfless Abnegation faction, or become a new, fearless person in the Dauntless faction. I have never seen the movie, but I imagine it will be as good as this novel was.
