In Beatrice Prior's dystopian Chicago, society is divided into five factions, each dedicated to the cultivation of a particular virtue—Candor (the honest), Abnegation (the selfless), Dauntless (the brave), Amity (the peaceful), and Erudite (the intelligent). On an appointed day of every year, all sixteen-year-olds must select the faction to which they will devote the rest of their lives. For Beatrice, the decision is between staying with her family and being who she really is—she can't have both. So she makes a choice that surprises everyone, including herself.

During the highly competitive initiation that follows, Beatrice renames herself Tris and struggles to determine who her friends really are—and where, exactly, a romance with a sometimes fascinating, sometimes infuriating boy fits into the life she's chosen. But Tris also has a secret, one she's kept hidden from everyone because she's been warned it can mean death. And as she discovers a growing conflict that threatens to unravel her seemingly perfect society, she also learns that her secret might help her save those she loves . . . or it might destroy her.


Debut author Veronica Roth bursts onto the literary scene with the first book in the Divergent series—dystopian thrillers filled with electrifying decisions, heartbreaking betrayals, stunning consequences, and unexpected romance.

"Sometimes crying or laughing are the only options left, and laughing feels better right now."


Divergent was a book that was taking the twitter and blogging universe by storm. I was dying to know what all the hype was about...Well now I know!

What a wicked debut novel! This book completely sucked me in, and did not let me go. I love books that pull me into it's reality and leave me pondering "What would I do?".

I don't even know where to begin with the stunning character cast. Each character was so vibrant, especially Tris. She is a strong, bold character but also deals with her own insecurities. She is a character that I immediatly fell in love with and enjoyed reading. Veronica Roth created such a vivid, mesmerizing world in Divergent. The entire book is one wild ride. There is blood, fighting, betrayal and romance...What's not to love?!

The original storyline is enough to pick up this book and give you a refreshing read. Divergent is a heart-pounding, thrilling debut novel! I can't wait to read more from Veronica Roth. She has me hooked!
