Divergent (Veronica Roth)

For this week’s blog entry, I have received a book review from two of our Year 9 girls, Molly and Anna.  They had read and thoroughly enjoyed Veronica Roth’s book Divergent. Here’s what they have to say:

Divergent by Veronica Roth is a fantasy action novel based in a different world, with a hint of romance.

The protagonist is a 16 year old girl called Beatrice, known to her friends as Tris. In her world everyone is born into a different clan according to their personality. At the age of 16 they can decide whether to leave their clan or stay. Tris has always felt out of place in Abnegation, her family’s clan, which promotes selflessness and humility. However she is reluctant to leave her family and she isn’t sure if she’d fit into the other clans either. But, no matter how things play out, the stakes are far higher than Tris could ever imagine, as tension between the clans continues to rise.

Divergent is an exciting, fast-paced novel, addressing many issues such as making tough decisions in difficult times, and loyalty to family. We would highly recommend this novel to anyone between the ages of 10 and 16.”
