& bestest friends.
If you're not familiar, Divergent is a young adult novel about a girl named Beatrice whose dystopian Chicago is divided into 5 factions--Candor (the honest), Abnegation (the selfless), Dauntless (the brave), Amity (the peaceful), and Erudite (the intelligent). On a specific day each year, all 16 year olds must choose to either stay in the faction they were raised in, or choose a new one, which means leaving their families and all they have ever known behind.
Beatrice makes a choice that surprises everyone--most of all herself, and becomes known as Tris during the insanely competitive initiation process into her new faction. She struggles to trust anyone, including the boy who ends up stealing her heart, and to keep a secret that could mean her death if revealed.
Divergent quickly became my absolute favorite young adult novel the minute I was done reading it (ER was still being written at this time, mind you) and I highly suggest you hop on this train ASAP, especially since the movie rights have been purchased by Summit. I can hardly contain my excitement for book 2--Insurgent--which is due to come out next Spring.
Good luck in the contest!!!
Hey guys! Callie and Lola here! We were too anxious for the giveaway to be posted at midnight so we made Cesya post it now. Isn't Traci simply amazing?? I may have to tell her and Cesya we "lost" the poster just so I can hang it in my library at home. Anyway, I won't waste anymore precious contest time.
