I recently read Divergent by Veronica Roth. I absolutely loved this book and it is one of my new favorites. This book is about a girl, Beatrice "Tris" Prior, who is in the Abnegation faction. The city is split up into separate factions. Each of them have a different personality and way of life. The different factions are: Abnegation, the selfless; Candor,the honest; Dauntless, the brave; Amity, the peaceful; and Erudite, the intelligent. Beatrice is in high school and at the part of her life where she has to chose which faction she wants to be in. She never felt like she belonged in Abnegation. To help her chose which faction would be most appropriate, she has to take a test. It is not like a paper test like we have in school. It's a virtual test that happens in your head. There are different scenarios you have to go through to find out which faction is right for you. After she is done with the test, her test giver seems nervous. The test giver said Beatrice's test didn't give a clear result which has never happened before. She tells Beatrice that that means she is divergent and she belongs in more than one faction. She cannot tell anyone about being divergent because she could be killed. When the time comes, Beatrice makes the right choice of where she thinks she belongs. That decision takes her on a wild journey. This book is filled with action, adventure, mystery and romance. I recommend this book to anyone who wants an exciting book that's hard to put down. - Alyson
