In Beatrice Prior’s world, set in a dystopian Chicago, citizens are divided into five factions based on their central value: Amity (kindness), Candor (honesty), Dauntless (bravery), Abnegation (selflessness), and Erudite (intelligence). When Beatrice takes the aptitude test and her tests come back inconclusive, she finds herself in a dangerous situation, for her Divergence is feared by the leaders of her world. This book takes on a very interesting concept and I particularly enjoyed author, Veronica Roth’s detailed and descriptive writing. However, I feel like the entire book was filled with stereotypical characters (ex. from the small, petite girl to a warrior, friendship turned into jealousy, etc.). Although very similar to The Hunger Games, I felt there was something missing or unrealistic about the plot.
