    "Good novel about competition but not a best. Viewpoints change a lot and so it's hard to follow. Good quality story and characters though, so worth the read for the fun of the adventure. "

    "Divergent is a great dystopian young adult novel that kicks off a fantastic series. In the future, as told by this book, people are divided into factions based on certain dominant traits and those factions are frequently at odds or in competition with each other. This book has suspense and drama and an interesting central character that will keep all readers engaged!"
