Divergent Book Review

BOOK REVIEW!!!  I haven't completed a book review in ages!!

"Divergent" by Veronica Roth
"Divergent" is indeed an "eye glued to every turning page, can't sleep until I am done" type of book.  Many people have related this book to "The Hunger Games" series, however I tried to read that series and didn't really follow and get into the book.  "Divergent" had me hook from the first page, (actually from the first sentence). 
"Divergent" is a dystopian novel similar to "The Hunger Games".  In this country the people are divided into different factions or you can say classes based on their personal characteristics.  At a point in the young adult's life, they have to take a test to see which faction they will belong to, and then they have a choice to pick the faction that they want to live in.  The main character, Beatrice or "Tris" takes this test and finds our that she is a "divergent". 
Tris picks another faction other than her own at the ceremony.  Does Tris survive this new faction? Also, how does Tris deal with being labeled as "Divergent?

This books really keeps you hanging at the edge of your seat to see what will happen next.  If you are into dystopian type books are looking for a new read.  This book is a must.  Since I brought this book through Amazon, I put this book at a 4 stars.  I am very critical about what I read, so being at a 4 stars is a great read.
