May 2011 New Gen Debut of the Month.

This is a heart-pounding and thrilling urban dystopian fiction debut from an exciting young author.  Divergent is a novel of non-stop suspense and twists and turn that you least expect.  There's romance too and a heroine who is determined to fulfill her plans even when conflict seems the only course of action.

Synopsis

Divergent by Veronica Roth

One choice can transform you. Pass initiation. Do not fail! Thrilling urban dystopian fiction debut from exciting young author.

 

The film of the book is due out Spring 2014. See a trailer below.

 

In sixteen-year-old Beatrice Prior's world, society is divided into five factions -- Abnegation (the selfless), Candor (the honest), Dauntless (the brave), Amity (the peaceful), and Erudite (the intelligent) -- each dedicated to the cultivation of a particular virtue, in the attempt to form a perfect society. At the age of sixteen, teens must choose the faction to which they will devote their lives. On her Choosing Day, Beatrice renames herself Tris, rejects her family's group, and chooses another faction. After surviving a brutal initiation, Tris finds romance with a super-hot boy, but also discovers unrest and growing conflict in their seemingly perfect society. To survive and save those they love, they must use their strengths to uncover the truths about their identities, their families, and the order of their society itself.


Reviews

Praise for DIVERGENT:

 

'A taut and shiveringly exciting read! Tris is exactly the sort of unflinching and fierce heroine I love. I couldn't turn the pages fast enough.' - Melissa Marr, bestselling author of Wicked Lovely

 

'Divergent is a captivating, fascinating book that kept me in constant suspense and was never short on surprises. It will be a long time before I quit thinking about this haunting vision of the future.' - James Dashner, author of The Maze Runner

 

'Well-written and brilliantly executed, Divergent is a heart-pounding debut that cannot be missed. Tris stands out in her action-packed, thrilling, and emotionally honest journey to determine who she wants to be in a society that demands she conform. It's dystopian fiction at its best!' - Kiersten White, New York Times bestselling author of Paranormalcy

    You have to celebrate your small triumphs: for example, today I woke up at 5:45 and yet I do not feel ill and panicky! #victoryismine
