Synopsis: A world divided into a group called factions, each specialising in a particular trait such as honesty; Candor, bravery; Dauntless, selflessness; Abnegation, peace; Amity and intelligence; Erudite. However, each also with a flaw. The book, based on the story of sixteen year old Beatrice 'Tris' Prior, who was raised in 'The City', is about the world where factions rule.
Extra information: Beatrice, who was Abnegation born, had a choice to change factions at the Choosing Ceremony, like all other sixteen year olds in other factions. After changing to... (you'll want to find that out yourself!), Beatrice adopts a new name in order to re-invent herself: Tris. Go through the ups and downs, sacrifices and betrayals and lives and deaths with Tris, in the wonderful world of The City, in Divergent.
Review: I love this book, even though I call lots of books my favourite, this has to be my genuine favourite. It made me sad, scared, anticipated, happy, relieved, angry, regretful and all sorts of other emotions. A must read, I recommend every young adult to read this, you have to, you'll be missing out on SO MUCH if you don't. It's going to make you feel better. Guaranteed!
