Homer took his Uncle's old horse in the night to go after his brother. Homer hit some bumps along the way to find Harold.

Fighting Back

In the book Hunger Games, Katniss Everdeen and Peeta Mellark both faced adversities in different and similar ways. They are similar because both Katniss and Peeta had to fight through what the capital was doing to the people of the districts. They worked together to defeat the capital. The way they were different was that Katniss would get angry when she was in trouble or threatened. Peeta would try not to let the adversities bother him. He was more accepting of the situation rather then fight it like Katniss.

The Secret

In the book Divergent, Tris ended up being divergent and couldn't tell anyone. She had to take many different steps to keep it secret during dauntless training otherwise she would be factionless or most likely killed. Those steps included,


  1. Not telling anyone
  2. Not going too slow or too fast in the simulations
  3. Not going through loopholes in simulations
  4. Figuring out who can be trusted
  5. Try to figure out if anyone else is divergent
  6. If there is another divergent, talk to them about how they have kept their secret
