Divergent is an awesome, thrill-ride full of an attempt at a utopian society, romance, death-defying experiences, and life choices that will change the world. Society is divided into five different factions with each focusing on a different personality characteristic that is believed to be the best. Courage, pursuit of knowledge, selflessness, and peacefulness are a few of the ideal traits. When a person reaches 16, he or she can choose which faction to join for the rest of their lives. This decision can make all the difference in how your life unravels afterward. I highly recommend this book.
