Divergent is is set in a dystopian society. They are broken up in to five factions. These factions are how they must live the rest of there life and be nothing else but how there faction acts and treats others. Thy take a test to determine what faction they belong in but they also have the choice to move to a different faction but once they do they can't leave.

The story line of this book is very well written and you can really feel all the emotions that they feel in the story. I think that the author put some things in the book that were not necessary and didn't make since at the time. I highly recommend this book for young adult readers. If you do not like science fiction books I would suggest this book because while it is technically science fiction it reads like a realistic fiction genre.
