This is a heart-pounding and thrilling urban dystopian fiction debut from an exciting young author. Divergent is a novel of non-stop suspense and twists and turns that you least expect. There's romance too and a heroine who is determined to fulfill her plans even when conflict seems the only course of action. A debut novel that will leave you breathless.
