The end of “The Hunger Games” series by Suzanne Collins brought me into a book depression.
I was so upset that the series was over. I didn’t want to read any other books; I just wanted my “Hunger Games” back.
But then I found a book called “Divergent” by Veronica Roth.
It’s the first book in an on-going series, also set in a dystopian future.
The book has similarities to “The Hunger Games,” but is also very different.
“Divergent” tells the story of a girl named Beatrice.
She grew up in the Abnegation faction, a faction for selfless people. Beatrice never felt like she belonged in the faction, and when the day comes for her to choose what faction she wants to spend the rest of her life in, she switches into the Dauntless faction.
The Dauntless are seen as rebellious and fearless, and upon her arrival, Beatrice changes her name to Tris and begins to start her new life.
The book is filled with action, suspense, danger and adventure.
I couldn’t put the book down for a second, and could barely wait to find out what was going to happen next.
This book is definitely for people who like the dystopian-future genre and adventure.
“Divergent” will captivate the reader all the way to the end.
