Any Divergent trilogy fans?
I'm obsessed! I stumbled across Divergent last week when I saw a list on Pinterest of books to read if you like the Hunger Games. I zipped right through it! The 2nd in the series came out Tuesday and I finished yesterday--now I am just sad the 3rd isn't released!
Here is the description from Amazon:
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 think if you like the Hunger Games you will probably like this as well!!
