The Divergent Series

 The divergent series, beautifully written by Veronica Roth vividly documents a sixteen year old girls journey to find her place in a dystonian society in which one belongs to one faction or none at all. These books illustrates an intriguing take on dystopian societies in which, as a coming of age ceremony all citizens must choose which faction they wish to belong to, a decision that is mind blowing and definitive. As the main character -Tris - makes this decision, she realizes she has an aptitude for several factions instead of just one. Having an aptitude for more than one faction means that the person is divergent, or genetically perfect. The series takes the reader or a journey that conveys the importance of being an individual; additionally the story connects to a similar journey that teens may face, going through life trying to find where they belong and who they are. Tris' story spoke to me because of its unforeseen twists and turns and how it transcends into the world we live in today, where there are a growing number of dystopian populations due to many facets like warfare, political and socio-economical problems. Although the romance aspect was somewhat impractical and developed way too swiftly, the message and story was highly intriguing and complex and I would recommend this trilogy to any teen.
