Short Passage

"The pane shatters, and the force of the water against my back throws me forward. There is air again.
I gasp and sit up in the chair. I gulp and shake out my hands. Fur stands to my right, but instead f helping me up, he just looks at me.
What? I ask.
How did you do that?
Do what?
Crack the glass.
I don't know. Four finally offers me his hand. I sing my leg over the side of the chair , and when i sand, i feel steady. Calm.
He sighs and grabs me by the elbow, half leading half dragging me out of the room....
What? I demand.
You're Divergent," he replies. (Pg 254-255)

This passage is very important, it shows that her secret was found out by Four. Four has been helping her from the beginning and later it says that i will erase all the video of the test but unless you want to die you must be careful.

This book is a very good read that pulls you into the story. Once you have started this book it is very hard to stop reading with all the action and suspense.

Good or Bad

I really enjoyed Divergent it is a great book with a great plot. There has been many times where i felt like i was watching a movie in my head because of all the great details. For example when Tris and Four are climbing the Ferris wheel and on their way down Tris slips and is holding on by her finger tips. There are many more examples of similar situations that Tris goes through.
