Divergent by Veronica Roth
Beatrice, now Tris in Dauntless is small but due to the training becomes strong. Physically and mentally. She also becomes close with one of the trainers and their relationship slowly becomes romantic. The story twists and turns.
Staying up late to finish this book was not a smart thing for me to do. I thought about it all night whether I was dreaming or awake. I even woke up thinking about it. Divergent will be compared to many books. It starts off like The Giver by Lois Lowry and parts of it are similar to The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins (receiving jobs in the former and survival in the latter) but Divergent is so much more. It is a little more violent than I expected but I stuck with with it and loved it and of course I am now anxiously awaiting book 2. Recommended for science fiction fans and those who enjoy dystopia books.
