“Becoming fearless isn't the point. That's impossible. It‘s learning how to control your fear, and how to be free from it.”

blurb

This book is similar to The Hunger Games trilogy, but has different elements. You could use this book to compare the different societies. I like how this book talks about being different and going against what society says you should do.

Published 2012. Set in a dystopian society that was once Chicago, people are split into five factions. Each faction has a connected virtue. When they turn 16, each child gets the opportunity to pick the faction they will belong to from then on. Tris Prior makes the decision to leave her family and join a new faction. She goes through the extensive and rigorous training of the Dauntless, all while hiding a secret about herself.

My Hunger Games loving 11 year old recommended this to me, and it was pretty good! The end got a bit long, but overall, I enjoyed it. Will definitely read the next two books eventually.
⭐️: 4/5

It's Tuesday and time for the #Two4Tuesday questions. Thanks you for taking the time to play. I enjoy reading your answers.

Here are my answers:
🏵 Divergent
🏵🏵 Not necessarily better but when chosen correctly I think one word titles are powerful. Take Divergent as an example, the word has a tone to it and has set the mood and some expectations before you even read the first line.

The Theo James character in the movies is named Four for only having four fears.

I listened to this on audio which, for me, means that my mind wandered a lot. I definitely plan on reading the next book in the series in print.

Much better than the movie. The movie did a sloppy job of telling this story. Left so many good parts out and messed up the order of events. The end wasn't what I was expecting though. It left me wanting more and wanting to read on to the next book. I can't wait to get my hands on the next book from the library! :)

I loved it! The character development was amazing! Near the end of the book, it began tugging hard at my heart strings and I enjoyed it so much! It‘s not often a book is able to do that.
For those of you that are hesitant to read this book, I bet you‘ll at least rate it a 4/5 and so I recommend that you read it, as well as watch the movie after. (And yes, there is a movie!)

I am not a big fantasy reader, but this book and the hunger games have made me love futuristic books. It shows you that you should always make decisions for yourself and not let society tell you what to do or how you should act. I find the moral of the story beautiful and the characters are so unique and made me feel really feel empowered and inspired.

I forgot to post about this when I started reading, but I decided to read this not only because my mom brought it home the other day, I went online and looked around on what this book is about. The summary of what this book is about caught my attention and the characters.

I just love these books so much and highly recommended! Lots of plot twists at the end so just be prepared, mentally. This made me laugh a lot. Especially being a big fan of the books. If you don‘t get it, read the book!

Also if you think watching the movie is better because it‘s quicker DON‘T. Read the books first because the movie makes all the characters just look different in my mind.

Day 3 of #tarotakeover is 2 of Wands. I chose Divergent because triss is faced with life changing choices . Starting with the fact that she is divergent and has to pretend she isn‘t ! 🖤sending peace and love to @ErinSueMreads and anyone else who is facing choices and blocks in their journey!

Branwen Ooooh that's a great book choice! 😀 2y

Not a huge fan of YA fiction but I did enjoy this book and the series overall. I listened to it on audio and that may have helped. A post apocalyptic society that has divided into 5 factions, each with it own strengths and what it gives to the community but as usual, nothing is as it appears. Tris decides to leave her faction and eventually things in the entire community begin to unravel.

Day 7 of my #20Series20Days - Divergent has my conflicted opinion. The first one was amazing, second one was very good, and the third was good. As the series progresses, Tris and Four both become better, but the plot loses its intensity. The last movie was a total fail! God, it actually didn't have a plot! The first two movies were great✌️

Veronica Roth is doing an AMA on Reddit. Not sure if she is still answering questions, but it's still interesting to read what others asked her.

This is definitely a book for our older crowd but this action packed SF, novel is great. Tris is separated from her family into a faction. Tris is different , she‘s dauntless and that makes her a problem in the eyes of the people in charge. This would make a great IR. Veronicarothbooks.com has a great discussion guide to correspond with all books within this series. You could also have your students create their own faction w/ values and beliefs.

Tabitha_H The ESOL strategy I would use would be #6, continually monitoring student comprehension. Since this is an independent read you want them to be able to understand what is being read. The UDL principle would be ( 9.1 ) promote expectations and beliefs that optimize motivation. #UCFLAE3414SP20 (edited) 3y
DrSpalding Along with the hunger games, this is a fantastic science fiction series. While not appropriate for elementary, upper middle and high school students enjoy these books. 3y
