I enjoyed reading the Divergent series by Veronica Roth. They were a quick read (I read all three books within a week and a half despite my heavy work schedule) that flirted with themes of corruption in government, institutionalized discrimination, the dangers of genetic engineering, and the ability to choose who we wish to be rather than who we are told to be. Tris and Four are compelling characters.
Look for the North Wind Online review of the popular Veronica Roth series that follows the exploits of Beatrice “Tris” Prior. Divergent , along with its sequels Insurgent and Allegiant , are available in the North High Library for student checkout. We will also update and post comments about the book on our North Wind Good Reads page where you can follow what we are reading and our staff literary recommendations.
