"How to be brave...How to be selfless. Often they're the same thing."
We are creatures of loss; we have left everything behind.I have no home, no path, and no certainty. I am no longer Tris, the selfless, or Tris, the brave. I suppose that now I must become more than either.
"I am not Abnegation. I am not Dauntless. I am Divergent."- Tris
"Fear doesn't shut you down, it wakes you up. I've seen it, it's incredible."
"Fear doesn't shut you down; it wakes you up"
NoticesAdd a Notice
Frightening or Intense Scenes: has something called &quot;fear simulations&quot; in which the Dauntless have to face their darkest fears. May be quite frightening for some people.
Sexual Content: lots of kissing & mild sexual immorality
Violence: killing, shooting, stabbing, and one boy commits suicide
Violence: Slight violence may be overwhelming for younger crowds
Frightening or Intense Scenes: Peter stabbing Eward's eye, Simulations, Tris getting hurt over and over again, Tris almost get killed by the people she loves the most. But is also sad because Four doesn't know Tris in the end and tries to hurt her, she witnesses her moms death, and she has to kill one of her best friends.
Frightening or Intense Scenes: Peter stabbing Edward's eye. During some stimulations. Four almost killing Tris.
Violence: Yes, of course Divergent would have violence. It's like The Hunger Games that way. For example, getting stab in the eye with a butterknife, fighting each other as a test, and being under simulation and killing off all the people of one faction. That's alot already.
Violence: Intense parts and may be traumatic to children 8 & under
Sexual Content: Kissing during and not during simulations.
SummaryAdd a Summary
You nailed it ILuvHP_2. And lots of violence and brutality too.
there is way too much kissing in this and isn't exactly "age appropriate" for kids 13 and under...
No words can describe divergent like the actual book so go read it now!
A 16 year old girl named Beatrice who soon changes her name to Tris lives in the fraction Abnegation but thinks she is not selfless enough to be there. So she decides to go to Dauntless. But before she went there her test to see what group she belongs to goes haywire and gives her 3 instead of one test results. Meaning she is Divergent. But she doesn't really know what it means. All she knows is it is not safe to be one. so she has to keep it a secret and long as she can.
Summaries below are accurate- The book is a dystopian, and therefore overhyped, just like Hunger Games. This book is horrible.
In this dystopian society, in the future Chicago, those that reach the age of 16 are forced to pick their life. They must decide where they belong: Abnegation, Erudite, Candor, Dauntless or Amity. Each faction has a goal. For example, the Abnegation believe that people are too selfish, therefore they show selflessness. Once they turn 16, they take a test to help them decide which faction is best for them. This story follows the life of a teenage girl, Beatrice Prior. When she takes the test, she learn that she is part of a rare group, she is Divergent. This means that she didn't fit into a specific group.
Through this story, it shows Tris' problems, decisions and her survival. Can she survive? Can she keep her divergence a secret? Will those that are hunting her find her?
Beatrice Prior and all other sixteen year olds in the future Chicago must make the most significant decision of their lives. They will decide to be Abnegation, Erudite, Candor, Dauntless, or Amity. To help them with this decision, an aptitude test creates a simulation to find what faction the teenagers belong in. This test shows that Beatrice does not just show traits of one faction, but instead shows three. This makes her Divergent.
This novel shows Tris's struggle to survive in a world that wants to kill her and every other Divergent. Divergents are hunted down and killed by the will of a certain one faction that has a plan to control the others. The only flaw in their control are the Divergents, who "cannot be controlled". Tris must save not only herself, but friends and family from their impeding deaths.
It was a good book. Kept me wanting to read more. Can't wait for the rest of the movies to come out.
This is the first book in the "Divergent" series. Beatrice Prior lives in a dystopian future Chicago where society is divided into 5 different factions based on the results of an aptitude test. This test is taken by every member of the city at age 16. The next day at the Choosing Ceremony, they can pick any faction to spend the rest of their life with, regardless of the test results. Beatrice Prior gets 3 results, which makes her Divergent. Abnegation, which she was born into because both her parents were Abnegation, Erudite and Dauntless. She picks Dauntless at the ceremony. Read the book to find out what happens next ;)
With a system of four factions in place, you must choose when you are sixteen whether or not to stay in your designated faction. Tris id contempating her options
