Divergent is the debut novel by author Veronica Roth, and the first installment of the Divergent trilogy. It is followed by Insurgent, which was released on May 1st, 2012.

In Beatrice Prior’s dystopian Chicago, society is divided into five factions, each dedicated to the cultivation of a particular virtue—Candor (the honest), Abnegation (the selfless), Dauntless (the brave), Amity (the peaceful), and Erudite (the intelligent). After a mandatory aptitude test, in which sixteen-year-olds are given a serum that produces a stimulation, they are graded for the different qualities of the different factions, and are adviced on the faction which they are most suited for. This is where Beatrice finds out that she is Divergent, someone with equal aptitude for more than one faction (In her case, Erudite, Abnegation and Dauntless). On the appointed day of every year, all sixteen-year-olds must thus select the faction to which they will devote the rest of their lives to. For Beatrice, originally in the Abnegation faction, the decision is between staying with her family and being who she really is—she can’t have both. So she makes a choice that surprises everyone, including herself– she chose to be Dauntless. Continue reading

Author: Suzanne Collins

Released: August 24, 2010

It is by design that Katniss was rescued from the arena in the cruel and haunting Quarter Quell, and it is by design that she has long been part of the revolution without knowing it. District 13 has come out of the shadows and is plotting to overthrow the Capitol. Everyone, it seems, has had a hand in the carefully laid plans — except Katniss.

The success of the rebellion hinges on Katniss’ willingness to be a pawn, to accept responsibility for countless lives, and to change the course of the future of Panem. To do this, she must put aside her feelings of anger and distrust. She must become the rebels’ Mockingjay — no matter what the personal cost.” She also has a plan to kill President Snow, but when it comes to the point where it’s all up to her, she remembers what President Snow said in The Hunger Games, “I thought we agreed we weren’t going to lie,” she says, “that’s right, we did,” and she aims a little above President Snow’s head, and shoots President Coin.

Released: September 1, 2009

When rumors of a rebellion that she started reach Katniss’ ears, everything changes. Now, as Peeta and Katniss are forced to visit the districts on the mandatory Victory Tour, everything can and will go wrong—if Katniss and Peeta cannot pull off their act as two madly-in-love teenagers. If they fail, both their families and their entire district could be in danger of President Snow’s wrath.

Against all odds, Katniss has won the Hunger Games. She and fellow District 12 tribute Peeta Mellark are miraculously still alive. Katniss should be relieved, happy even. After all, she has returned to her family and her longtime friend, Gale. Yet nothing is the way Katniss wishes it to be. Gale holds her at an icy distance, Peeta has turned his back on her completely, and there are whispers of a rebellion against the Capitol — a rebellion that Katniss and Peeta may have helped create.

Much to her shock, Katniss has fueled an unrest she’s afraid she cannot stop. And what scares her even more is that she’s not entirely convinced she should try. As time draws near for Katniss and Peeta to visit the districts on the Capitol’s cruel Victory Tour, the stakes are higher than ever. If they can’t prove, without a shadow of a doubt, that they are lost in their love for each other, the consequences will be horrifying.

“The Hunger Games” Cover

Author: Suzanne Collins

Released: September 14th, 2008

The Hunger Games is a young-adult, dystopian novel written by Suzanne Collins. It was originally published on September 14, 2008. The book is the first in The Hunger Games trilogy, followed by Catching Fire, then Mockingjay.

In the ruins of a place once known as North America lies the nation of Panem, a shining Capitol surrounded by twelve outlying districts. The Capitol is harsh and cruel and keeps the districts in line by forcing them all to send one boy and one girl between the ages of twelve and eighteen to participate in the annual Hunger Games, a fight to the death on live TV.

Sixteen-year-old Katniss Everdeen regards it as a death sentence when she steps forward to take her sister’s place in the Games. But Katniss has been close to death before — and survival, for her, is second nature. Without really meaning to, she becomes a contender. But if she is to win, she will have to start making choices that weigh survival against humanity and life against love.
