Certainly an interesting setting with promising characters. Intrigued that people are forced to pick one virtue to of five to dedicate themselves to; if anything about the book was hard to swallow, it was that.

There are so many Y-A distopian books out there right now, it's tough to know the bad from the good. I've read quite a few and they all seem to be pale wannabes compared to The Hunger Games Trilogy. Then I read "Divergent." It knocked my socks off. It's thrilling, romantic, and contains edge-of-your-seat suspense. The heroine kicks butt. There are enough mysteries and hanging plot threads to propel you to the next book in the series. Yet, it was emotionally satisfying as a stand-alone novel. I zoomed through the book in 3 days. I couldn't put it down yet didn't want it to end. Now, I keep pushing the book into all my friends' hands. Really satisfying and fun novel.

"Publishers Weekly Review" by , "In this edgy debut (definitely not for the fainthearted), first in a trilogy, promising author Roth tells the riveting and complex story of a teenage girl forced to choose, at age 16, between her routinized, selfless family and the adventurous, unrestrained future she longs for. Beatrice 'Tris' Prior lives in crumbling dystopian Chicago, where citizens are divided into five factions — Candor, Abnegation, Dauntless, Amity, and Erudite — depending on their beliefs, passions, and loyalties. When Tris forsakes her Abnegation family to become one of the wild, fearless Dauntless, she must confront her deepest fears, learn to trust her fellow initiates, and guard the ominous secret that she is actually a Divergent, with the strengths of multiple factions, and is therefore a target of dangerously controlling leaders. Roth's descriptions of Tris's initiation process are as spellbinding as they are violent, while the tremulous romance between Tris and her protective and demanding instructor, Four, unfurls with heart-stopping tenderness. For those who loved The Hunger Games and are willing to brave the sometimes sadistic tests of strength and courage Tris must endure, the reward is a memorable, unpredictable journey from which it is nearly impossible to turn away. Ages 14 — up. (May)" Publishers Weekly (Starred Review) (Copyright PWxyz LLC)

"Synopsis" by ,
The hugely anticipated follow-up to the New York Times bestselling The 5th Wave, hailed by Justin Cronin as “wildly entertaining.”


For Cassie Sullivan and the rest of Earths remaining human survivors, the situation was already desperate when the 5th Wave hit. Its about to get worse.

No one yet knows the depths to which Earths conquerors—the Others—will sink in order to rid the Earth of the human infestation, nor have they guessed the heights to which the human spirit can reach. Characters introduced in Book One will come to the fore—and others will face the ultimate test.

Readers will watch in awe as the Others give their answer to Cassies defiance.

Perfect for fans of the dystopian settings of The Hunger Games and Divergent, the gripping second installment of the Slated trilogy is a riveting psychological thriller set in a future where violent teens have their memory erased as an alternative to jail.


Kyla has been Slated—her personality wiped blank, her memories lost to her forever. Or so she thought. She shouldnt be able to remember anything. But increasingly she can—and shes discovering that there are a lot of dark secrets locked away in her memories. When a mysterious man from her past comes back into her life and wants her help, she thinks shes on her way to finding the truth. But this new knowledge lands her in the middle of a tug-of-war between two dangerous adversaries, and despite her misgivings about both of them, shes forced to choose a side for her own protection.
