November's Reading Power Book Club: Divergent
Remember, remember, the fifth of November, they say.
We say, Divergent, Divergent, the book of November!
It's so-hot-right-now because loads of people are tipping it to be the next Hunger Games (our first ever Reading Power Book no less!). It's also hitting cinema screens in spring next year and will star Kate Winslet from that film about a sinking ship.
Like The Hunger Games it's a trilogy and it's all dystopian and stuff...
In Beatrice Prior's dystopian Chicago, society is divided into five factions, each dedicated to the cultivation of a particular virtue - Candor (the honest), Abnegation (the selfless), Dauntless (the brave), Amity (the peaceful), and Erudite (the intelligent). On an appointed day of every year, all sixteen-year-olds must select the faction to which they will devote the rest of their lives. For Beatrice, the decision is between staying with her family and being who she really is - she can't have both. So she makes a choice that surprises everyone, including herself.
So there you go, this month's Reading Power Book Club selection is Divergent by Veronica Roth. You don't have to buy the book, just take a trip to your local library and borrow one for free. Once you've read it come back here and post your thoughts in the comments section below.
