Book Review: ”Divergent”
Book Review: "Divergent"
Veronica Roth, author of Divergent, creates a perfectly balanced and structured society that consists of five groups divided strictly on how the brain works: Abnegation, Erudite, Dauntless, Amity, and Candor. At age sixteen, all members of the society have to choose which faction they will live in to begin their journey as adults. A mind stimulation is given to each inductee before the Choosing Ceremony to help determine where they would be most fit.
