But when she turns 16, she decides to join Dauntless—partly because they're cool (tattoos, piercing, leather jackets, love of Wuthering Heights); partly because she doesn't feel selfless enough to be a good Abnegation; and partly because her test result showed that she was Divergent, meaning she doesn't really fit in with any one faction.

Divergent, by author Veronica Roth, is noted on the New York Bestseller list. It is the first book in the trilogy series of novels for young adults that further expands the look and feel of the dystopian genre in young adult fiction. It has a feeling similar in comparison to the book Hunger Games and The Maze Runner yet it has many differences. Divergent looks more into the personality of its characters from the inside and the resulting struggles they deal with when figuring out their identities and futures to a completely different level.

She is still young compared to other authors. She’s just beginning her writing career. Roth plans to stick to the sci-fi genre and base more of her books off of dystopian societies. She hopes to continue sparking questions in her readers’
