Divergent by Veronica Roth

The community Beatrice lives in is divided up into five groups. Each group values a different quality. When every child turns sixteen, they may choose the group they wish to join. They can stay in the group they were born into – or they can leave their families forever. But if the person fails the gruelling tests that prove that they can join the group, which, in the group Beatrice joins, involve knife throwing, fighting and experiencing terrifying simulations, they are cast out onto the street, factionless. (Note: in the book, the ‘groups’ are referred to as factions.)

Beatrice must make the decision that will change her life forever, the decision that will change who she is. But Beatrice has a secret. She is a Divergent.

As she ventures into a different group, Beatrice has no idea what is in store for her. She has no idea what being a Divergent means – only that it is dangerous.

I read this book in a day. Gripped to the pages by its unique plot, I could not put it down. Although I found it a little lacking in high-quality description, it contained nothing inappropriate. I would strongly recommend it to any ten year old and up.

I hope you enjoy this book as much as I did!
