Divergent – A Book Review

I’ve been a busy girl…dedicating part of each evening to reading the books that I order for my classroom.  I don’t feel that I can recommend books for my students without knowing what I’m talking about, so it’s only fair that I read them first.

A book I finished a couple of weeks ago was Divergent, by Veronica Roth.

The number of pages in this book can seem daunting…especially for my kids, who are struggling readers.

However, the suspense begins IMMEDIATELY, hooking the reader from the very first words.

Before you know it, you’re sucked in, and you CANNOT PUT IT DOWN!

Ms. Roth described every scene so well that I could see movies in my head.  There’s hardly a page that doesn’t contain action of some sort.

When I finished reading this book, I gave a book talk about it to my classes.

One of my boys grabbed it up, looking a little doubtful when I asked if he wanted to check it out of my “library.”

By the second day, he was asking to take it home, admitting that he was hooked.

This is part of a series.  I can’t wait to get my hands on the second book!
