    Stanley Yelnats isn't so surprised when a miscarriage of justice sends him to a juvenile detention center. After all, his family has been ridden with bad luck ever since a one-legged gypsy put a curse on his great-great grandfather. He is told that the hard labor he must perform, digging five-foot holes in the dried up soil where Green Lake once sat, is meant to build character. But it soon becomes clear to Stanley that the warden is really using the boys to search for something very valuable.

    In Beatrice Prior's dystopian Chicago, society is divided into five factions, each dedicated to the cultivation of a particular virtue - Candor (the honest), Abnegation (the selfless), Dauntless (the brave), Amity (the peaceful), and Erudite (the intelligent). On an appointed day of every year, all sixteen-year-olds must select the faction to which they will devote the rest of their lives. For Beatrice, the decision is between staying with her family and being who she really is - she can't have both. So she makes a choice that surprises everyone, including herself.

    Grant says: "It's not for me. Loved it anyway."

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    teenagers


    What could Veronica Roth have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    the core of the story is good, and the author could have make the ramifications more interesting instead of fixing the drama in a mystery that is never reveled in the book. I finished with book 1 and 2, and still is to be seeing the WHAT and the WHY of the story.


    What didn’t you like about Emma Galvin’s performance?

    Great!


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Divergent?

    the Initiation: it is too long.
