Divergent by Veronica Roth - Review

In Veronica Roth's harsh future people are divided into five factions: Abnegation, Amity, Candor, Dauntless, and Erudite. When you reach the age of 16, you are tested to see where you are best suited and then given a choice. That choice will affect everything from where you live, what you believe, and whom you befriend. If you don't pass the test once you've picked your faction, you become factionless, living without community. And you might not live through the initiation process.

Beatrice grows up in Abnegation but chooses Dauntless. She has no idea how dangerous that choice is for her, especially as she has tested Divergent - showing traits of more than one faction. She is a wild card. And wild cards are dangerous. Can Tris keep her true nature a secret? Can she protect her family and her new faction? This fast-paced, all-action page turner held me captive from beginning to end. It is violent
and dangerous, political and thoughtful, provocative and scary. And it is very, very good. I can't recommend it highly enough.

I LOVED this book and just found out they are using my review for the Summer 2011 Kids' Indie Next List
