Divergent is a fantasy book by Veronica Roth. In the book, the city is divided into five factions, each based on a different talent: Abnegation, Amity, Candor, Dauntless, and Erudite. Beatrice Prior must choose which faction she will belong to for the rest of her life. However, during the aptitude test, she is revealed to be "Divergent," meaning she has an aptitude for multiple factions. Beatrice chooses to join the Dauntless faction, and she trains to become a member of the faction while trying to keep her true identity a secret. Her divergent abilities cause her and Four to uncover a plot by the Erudite faction to overthrow the Abnegation faction and take over the city.

I really enjoyed reading this book. It was very action-packed, which made me want to keep reading it. There are a lot of times where I found myself learning things right along with the characters and experiencing their emotions. I also found it really interesting to watch the characters change throughout the book. Some characters learn a lot about themselves, and others you begin to learn more about their significance as the book continues. The book did end on a little bit of a cliffhanger, but it did also have a slight resolution so that it is not entirely dependent on the next book to explain things. I really liked reading this book, and I would definitely recommend it.
