Summer Reading Book

Over the summer I read Divergent by: Veronica Roth. I thought that it was not very interesting at first but as I read more it became more interesting. The plot was very well thought out and it is easy to picture.


Divergent starts out about a girl named Trice who was born in the abnegation faction. Every child in the community must take the Aptitude test, this picks the faction that you join by your actions in the test. Trice is a divergent this means she gets to choose her faction but has to keep her divergence a secret because they cannot be controlled easy and the faction leaders don't like this. She chooses the Dauntless faction which is a bravery faction. She later meats Tobias another divergent. Farther into the book the leader of the dauntless start an attack on a faction and Trice and Tobias must stop it.
