Summary: (from goodreads) In a future Chicago, 16-year-old Beatrice Prior must choose among five predetermined factions to define her identity for the rest of her life, a decision made more difficult when she discovers that she is an anomaly who does not fit into any one group, and that the society she lives in is not perfect after all.

Being that this book has already received two amazing 5 tree reviews from Yara and Ana, I contemplated rather or not I needed to write yet another review for the same book. This one will be slightly different than my usual words of expression, after a good read, as I am happy to announce that this too will be a 5 tree review, my very first one. I’ll begin with this…If you are ever given the title of a good book to read, from more than one person, including your own teenager, take it for heart, don’t put it off, drop what your doing (or reading, literally, I stopped reading a highly anticipated book that just released, for this one) buy a copy, borrow a copy, or download it quick, because you might, just miss out on something pretty amazing.

When Coven leader, Yara, announced that she just received the surprise of her life in the mail and that we were all a part of #TeamDauntless, I had no earthly clue what she meant. At the time I really just wanted her to tell me all about it, but instead, she stated, “You have to read the book.” I asked my oldest about it, and he said, “Mom, I told you months and months ago that that book was just as good or if not better” than another extremely popular book/recently turned movie. So thank goodness for my Kindle, as a road trip to the nearest book store wasn’t needed, but just a click of a button via Amazon. So glad I never looked back, until I finished it.

In conclusion, there is not much more that I can add, that Yara and Ana, have not already stated. But I can say, when I read, I know a book is good, when I’m suddenly in the world that has been staged through the words of the author. I read Divergent, reading the words of the pages, through the eyes of Beatrice. I was with her fully when that grand decision of life had to be made. I could feel why she changed her name to Tris. I could see the image of her new friends and enemies. I could hear the unspoken devotion that “Four,” her instructor, had for her. He trains her, her teaches her, he inspires her. Finally, I could feel her pain, from start to finish, physically and emotionally. How she battles between family, choices, danger and what is right. When a novel does all this, how could it receive anything less? I am #TeamDauntless, anticipating Insurgent, as its arrival quickly approaches. I will be brave enough to dive into the next chapter of Tris’ life. I will be brave enough to take the dangerous journey until the very end.

Don't miss out on all the fun Insurgent activities and giveaways going on now. Join in the #TeamDauntless Street Team and we will prevail above the rest. FACTION BEFORE BLOOD.

  1. I love that banner! I have to admit I think I might have been Erudite if I was in Divergent. I'm not peaceful, selfless, brave or honest all the time but I do show my intelligence most of the time. :)
