This first book in Veronica Roth's #1 New York Times bestselling Divergent trilogy is the novel the inspired the major motion picture starring Shailene Woodley, Theo James, and Kate Winslet. This dystopian series set in a futuristic Chicago has captured the hearts of millions of teen and adult readers.

Perfect for fans of the Hunger Games and Maze Runner series, Divergent and its sequels, Insurgent and Allegiant, are the gripping story of a dystopian world transformed by courage, self-sacrifice, and love. Fans of the Divergent movie will find the book packed with just as much emotional depth and exhilarating action as the film, all told in beautiful, rich language.

One choice can transform you. Beatrice Prior's society is divided into five factions—Candor (the honest), Abnegation (the selfless), Dauntless (the brave), Amity (the peaceful), and Erudite (the intelligent). Beatrice must choose between staying with her Abnegation family and transferring factions. Her choice will shock her community and herself. But the newly christened Tris also has a secret, one she's determined to keep hidden, because in this world, what makes you different makes you dangerous.

And don't miss Veronica Roth’s thrilling novel Carve the Mark.

    I love this book!! It is a really great series as well. I am still only on the allegiant book but I've read halfway through the last book, Four. I'm weird like that.

      This is a very good book. I love all the thought and dedication that was put into making every single character. I recommended it to a lot of my school friends and they have recommended it to others as well. Great Work!

          I loved it! It was amazing, and full of action, adventure, and romance ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) This is the first book in the series, and probably my favorite book in the series!

                There is actually a 4th book in the series called Four. It’s really good.

                    I loved it. It is now my favorite book. I love how Veronica Roth expresses the characters and the plot. I am trying to get the second book in the series so I can continue reading. I high recommend this book to 12-15 not for littler kids. 5-5 stars on this book.

                      This series is awesome, especially if you like Harry Potter or The Hunger Games.
