Student Recommendation: DIVERGENT by Veronica Roth

I'm a huge dystopian fan, and an even bigger DIVERGENT fan, so when I knew that one of my 8th grade boys, who is a huge reader, had not yet read it, I knew I needed to recommend it to him and his group to read together. I'm so glad he liked it! This is definitely one of those books that hooks teen readers in my experience.

Author: Veronica Roth
Publisher: Katherine Tegen Books (a HarperCollins imprint)
Release Date:  May 3, 2011
Number of Pages: 487
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.

I recently read one of my favorite books of all time, which is Divergent by Veronica Roth. Divergent is a dystopian romance novel. I rate Divergent five out of five stars. I rate it five out of five stars because there are so many twists, turns, and secrets in this book. I recommend this book to people who love a good action adventure book. I love this book, I love every single thing about it. As I said before there are so many major plot twists from beginning to end. This book deserves many awards and honors. This book is so good all of the parts are my favorite. I recommend reading the sequel to Divergent, Insurgent, to everybody who loves this book.
