Divergent

Book Review by: Sarah Beth

Book by: Veronica Roth
Book Length: 487 pages pages

Story Summary: The main characters name is Beatrice Prior. She has a brother named Caleb and a mother and father. She lives in a faction called Abnegation and they are known for being selfless and always putting themselves last. The five factions are Abnegation (the selfless), Erudite (the intelligent), Dauntless (the brave), Candor
(the honest), and Amity (the peaceful). Beatrice feels like she doesn’t fit in with the Abnegation because she is to selfish, but if she leaves she will look like a traitor to her family. Will Beatrice stay with her family and be an outsider? Or will she leave fit in but be a traitor?

Your Review: I loved this book because it goes through the life and perspective of Beatrice Prior. I liked all of her adventures and obstacles she faces as she grows up. I didn’t like all of the violence that happens and the fact that the their problems are never really resolved. My favorite character is Four. He is a secretive person who won’t answer questions and has a very damaged past. It is already a movie and is a series. I think that middle schoolers would love this book. My peers should choose this as their next book.

The Hunger Games

Book Review by: Maggie

Book by: Suzanne Collins
Book Length: 374 pages

Story Summary: The Capitol is a cruel and harsh place. They keep the districts in order by forcing them all to send one girl and one boy between the ages of twelve and eighteen to be apart of the annual Hunger Games. If you got picked for the Hunger Games then you will be put into an arena where you would have to fight on live TV. The arena is controlled by the oddly dressed people at the Capitol. They will do anything to determine a winner!

Your Review: I loved this book! My favorite part about this book is that it never stops. I do not like to read unless I find the perfect book that gives very good details. The Hunger Games was the perfect book for me. It also is a series which is a bonus. I would recommend this book because it keeps going, like I said.
