Lately, there's been a lot of hype surrounding Veronica Roth's Divergent trilogy--particularly with the release of the movie adaption a few months back. At the library, the trilogy is so popular we can barely keep the books on the shelves! But is this dystopian story of a teen who rebels against society's rules and regulations worth all that acclaim? Teen reviewer Jack Butzu, 11, thinks so.
"I like this book because the setting is a world where society is divided into fractions that believe different things. The main character, Beatrice, is faced with the problem of choosing a fraction. I liked how Beatrice develops as a character by being herself."
Jack recommends Divergent for teens 13 and older.
