The most compelling book we would like to recommend is called Divergent. We think it is a real page-turner. The catchy storyline of Veronica Roth is a worldwide bestseller. It is a dystopian fiction; that means it set in the future, in the wake of a terrible war.
In this riveting book society consists of five factions called: Abnegation-the selfless; Dauntless- the brave; Erudite-the intelligent; Candor-the honest and Amity-the peaceful. Each faction has its own duties. At the age of sixteen you have to go through a so-called aptitude test, which finds out who you truly are. To test this, you get injected with a serum that causes a simulation in your head. Normally the test results show one faction, but there are also people whose test results are inconclusive: DIVERGENT
Being a Divergent is extremely dangerous and rare. Powerful people want to get rid of them, because they are said to be a threat to all the other factions. Divergents are immune to the serums, no one can control them against their will.
The main character is Beatrice Prior. She lives with her brother Caleb and her parents Andrew and Nathalie in an Abnegation house. She lives a selfless life, but she doesn’t feel like an Abngation, because she also cares about herself. The aptiudiude test showed her three possible factions: Abnegation, Dauntless and Erudite. The fact that she is sixteen and her inconclusive test results makes it even harder to choose the right faction.
Either she has to leave her family or start a new life in another faction?! But the most important thing for her is to hide that she is DIVERGENT.
