Divergent: Divergent Trilogy, Book 1, written by Veronica Roth, narrated by Emma Galvin

In sixteen-year-old Beatrice Prior’s dystopian Chicago, people were categorized into five factions, each based on a personality trait; Abnegation upheld selflessness, Candor followed honesty, Dauntless practiced bravery, Eurodite exalted intelligence and Amnity practiced peace. Beatrice was tested to see which faction she had a strong aptitude for, and had unusual test results; therefore, she was labeled Divergent, and warned to tell no one. Sixteen-year-olds had to select either their family’s faction or another faction; accordingly, Beatrice left Abnegation for Dauntless, renamed herself Tris, and met Four, her mysterious Dauntless trainer. Beatrice adapted to her new faction, navigated a romantic interest, but found out that her society was deeply flawed, so she acted to save her family and friends. I recommend this young adult, fast paced, entertaining, and lively narrated thriller, full of plot twists, to science fiction lovers of all ages.

Overall Rating: A
