Divergent - Divergent Trilogy Book 1 (Paperback)Veronica Roth (author)
The seminal YA fantasy that spawned a legion of imitators, Divergent follows Beatrice Prior as she undergoes initiation into one of the five factions that will decide her fate for the rest of her life.
Celebrate the 10th anniversary of Divergent with a special edition of the internationally bestselling series that inspired a series of major motion pictures starring Shailene Woodley. This edition features exclusive content from Veronica Roth and beautiful reimagined cover art from award-winning illustrator Victo Ngai.
In the world of Divergent, society is divided into five factions - Candor (the honest), Abnegation (the selfless), Dauntless (the brave), Amity (the peaceful) and Erudite (the intelligent). Every year, all sixteen-year-olds must select the faction to which they will devote the rest of their lives. Beatrice Prior must choose between staying with her family and being who she really is. Her choice shocks everyone - including herself.
During the initiation that follows, Tris and her fellow initiates undergo extreme tests with devastating consequences. As initiation transforms them, Tris must determine who her friends really are - and whether she can trust the man who both threatens and protects her.
Because Tris has a deadly secret. And as growing conflict threatens to unravel their seemingly perfect society, this secret might save those she loves ... or it might destroy her.

'Riveting... a memorable, unpredictable journey from which it is nearly impossible to turn away.' - Publishers Weekly
'This gritty, paranoid world is built with careful details and intriguing scope. The plot clips along at an addictive pace, with steady jolts of brutal violence and swoony romance. Fans snared by the ratcheting suspense will be unable to resist speculating on their own factional allegiance. Guaranteed to fly off the shelves.' - Kirkus
'With brisk pacing and lavish flights of imagination, Divergent clearly has thrills, but it also movingly explores a more common adolescent anxiety - the painful realisation that coming into one's own sometimes means leaving family behind, both ideologically and physically.' - New York Times
'The next big thing.' - Rolling Stone
'Thrilling' - US Weekly
