Allegiant, by Veronica Roth+
This book is in both Tris and Four’s points of view. Tris and a couple others escape to outside the wall. What they find is amazing. Her city is an experiment made by the government because of genetic experiments. They would take out the gene that makes people lie but it makes them ruthlessly truthful. Things like that, hence the faction system. Four joins in a rebellion that wants to overthrow the experiments. He doesn’t get all the information though and lots of people are killed and hurt. Tris and Four’s relationship is still very rocky.
Bottom line: This book is a lot better than the last. It does end the series. The ending is very controversial. I think it needed to happen.
Insurgent, by Veronica Roth+
Insurgent is the sequel to Divergent. Tris is grieving the death of many friends and family. This makes her very angry and hopeless. She does stupid things that lead to other people getting hurt trying to help her. Her relationship with everyone is very rocky and strange. She is still a very good narrator but you do spend a lot of time with her. She releases a video to the public that tells them some very important things. The next book is about what she does with the consequences of showing the video.
Bottom line: This book is okay. Not my favorite though. In the first book, you learn to love Tris and her relationship with not only Four but her friends as well. In this book Tris and Four’s relationship is rocky at best, and Tris has a very suicidal nature. I would say that this book is still okay for 6th graders but later 6th graders that have a stable environment. Only because of Tris’ suicidal nature. This book is still very important to the story.
Divergent is about this girl named Tris who finds out that she is divergent. Being divergent is very dangerous. It means that you fit into more than one category or faction. There are five factions: Erudite, the intelligent; Dauntless, the brave; Abnegation, the selfless; Amity, the kind; and Candor, the truthful. In this society, once you are 16, you take a test to find out what faction you are supposed to be in. The next day, you chose what faction in front of everyone in all the factions. You choose by cutting your hand and dropping your blood into a bowl. She chooses Dauntless and has to go through initiation which if you do not pass you will have to live homeless in the factionless. She finds her best friends and her boy-friend Four. Then the Erudite put transmitters in the Dauntless. They control the Dauntless to attack Abnegation because the Erudite want power. Tris has to try to save everyone.
Bottom line: I love this book. I actually was Tris for Halloween. So, I love this book series. It is for 6th grade and older. I read them in 6th grade, and they are awesome.
