What would happen to you if people saw you as you truly are, and you didn’t fit in anywhere? Beatrice has a terrible secret – she doesn’t belong – and if people find out, the consequences could be tragic!

Beatrice lives in a society that is divided into five communities, each dedicated to one primary quality - Abnegation (the selfless), Amity (the peaceful), Candor (the honest), Dauntless (the brave), and Erudite (the intelligent). Once a year, all sixteen-year-olds finish school and must choose the community that they will spend the rest of their lives with. Beatrice must choose between staying with her family and becoming something more. When her turn comes, she makes a choice that surprises everyone, including herself!

As she becomes involved in her new life, Beatrice, or Tris as she’s now known, discovers that things are not as they seem; in fact, something is terribly wrong. Trusting the wrong person could mean certain death. Can she trust Four, the totally cute guy that she might be falling for? What about her family, who she misses, but also really confuse her because they too aren’t what they seem.

You’ll have to read right through to the exciting end of this book to get all of these and more questions answered. The movie Divergent is set for release in March, 2014.
