ONE CHOICE DECIDES YOUR FRIENDS, DEFINES YOUR BELIEFS AND DETERMINES YOUR LOYALTIES … FOREVER.
In sixteen-year-old Beatrice’s world, society is divided into five factions – Abnegation (the selfless), Candor (the honest), Dauntless (the brave), Amity (the peaceful), and Erudite (the intelligent) – each dedicated to the cultivation of a particular virtue, in the attempt to form a “perfect society.” At the age of sixteen, teens must choose the faction to which they will devote their lives.
Everyone’s talking about this book and it hasn’t even hit the shelves yet! This is the opportunity for you to win one of the advance reading copies which are in hot demand – we only have one left! To win, tell us which faction you think you would choose, and why.
Remember that for all a faction’s good points, there are bad. Being selfless is one thing, always having to say yes is another. Honesty seems like the right thing, until you insult someone with your true thoughts. Bravery is to be commended, unless it is misinterpreted and becomes foolhardy posturing. Peace only goes so far … standing back to do nothing will not keep the peace. And intelligence and knowledge can be used for evil as well as good.
Competition now closed. Congratulations to Zena Shapter, who won the copy of Divergent. If you didn’t win, don’t worry, finished copies of Divergent will be out on 1 May 2011.
