“A young girl named Tris lived a selfless life in the Abnegation faction, but she knows that she hasn`t fit in much. The tests for the factions are coming up. When she finishes the nerve racking test, she finds out that she is Divergent. She doesn`t know what it means or how dangerous it is, but she can`t tell anyone about it. Every sixteen year old will pick what faction they want to be in. After Tris picks Dauntless as her faction she has to go through initiation. The first stage of the initiation is to fight and learn how to defend yourself. Along the way she has a deep connection with an initiate trainer named Four. As she starts to fall for him, he starts to fall for her. They both find out that Eric, one of the Dauntless leaders, is working with another faction to destroy Abnegation. Then as she gets to the second stage of initiation, everything starts to go the wrong way. She is at the top for the second stage, which is going through your worst nightmares. Then she finds out who Four really is and where he is from. After the second stage everyone goes to the final test. She passes it with flying colors as first place, but everything was a bit off. The next morning she wakes up and everyone is out of bed walking like zombies and heading for Abnegation. Tris and Four are the only ones awake, but soon they get captured and then four gets manipulated against his will. Tris meets her father and brother to go to the Dauntless headquarters to save Abnegation and Four.
I loved this book to death, I couldn`t stop reading. I couldn`t think about anything else what so ever. I would give this book a five star. The book had everything I was looking for like action, adventure, and a bit of romance on the side. I absolutely can`t wait to read the second book called Insurgent.
One of the things I didn`t like about Divergent was the ending. I think that the ending should have ended better. I also think that it went a little fast at the end, because everything kind of got clumped together way too quickly.
