WHAT’S IT ABOUT?
In a futuristic dystopia where humanity is separated into five groups based on their different virtues, teenagers are forced to decide whether to remain in their groups or switch to another for the rest of their lives. Tris Prior (Woodley) is one such teenager, but tests show that she is a Divergent which means she does not fit into any one group and can prove fatal if her secret was exposed…
IN ONE SENTENCE, WHY SHOULD YOU BE EXCITED?
Despite following in the footsteps of The Hunger Games [too obvious] Twilight [oh God, no] any other YA futuristic novel not created by Stephanie Meyer or Suzanne Collins, Divergent should prove to have enough strength to stand on its own with suspenseful action and a fine cast.
