This is a great book for lovers of The Hunger Games. This book follows Beatrice Prior through the dystopic world where, at the age of 16, everyone must choose one of the five factions to live in for the rest of their lives. Each faction emphasizes a different character trait, such as truth, or bravery. But when Beatrice learns something about herself that could put her in danger, she must find out who she really is, and try to make sense of the world around her. She must learn who to trust, and who to be wary of. The characters in this person vs. society book are expertly portrayed, giving you insight into their hopes, dreams, and fears.The first volume of the Divergent trilogy is a page turner that is unable to put down. This book is great for ages 12 and up, and is a 9 out of 10 stars.
