  Divergent by Veronica Roth

Review by: Abigail I.
Delaware, Grade 5

My favorite book this year was Divergent by Veronica Roth. It takes place in the future of Chicago, and the main characters are Beatrice, Four, Caleb, Jeanine, and Eric. Beatrice is 16 and must take the aptitude test. She finds out she's Divergent, which is dangerous and she must keep it a secret. She is in a faction called Abnegation but on Choosing Day she chooses Dauntless. She meets Four, and Christina and they become really good friends, but it won't be like that for long. Pretty soon, it's up to her and Four to save all the factions from corruption.

What I liked was when Tris was able to overcome her fear when she realized she was no longer in simulation, but in real life. I didn't like when Eric and Jeanine decided to try and team up with eachother.
