Veronica Roth has created a world that is to be compared to Suzanne Collins' The Hunger Games series. Roth's Divergent, including following books Insurgent and Allegiant, introduces readers to a world that is truly all encompassing and compelling. Set in a future Chicago, main character Beatrice "Tris" Prior faces some difficult choices after discovering her true identity.
This series is outstanding and comprehensive of today's government and society in the United States. It suggests interesting ideas that young adult readers are more than equipped to understand. If this series hasn't already taken the world by storm, it is soon to do so. Veronica Roth's series is a force to be reckoned with. Katniss Everdeen has a new opponent in the media Hunger Games.
Like The Hunger Games series, this new young adult trilogy is not necessarily appropriate for all ages. There is some adult content that rated the movie adaptation of Roth's Divergent PG-13. According to Common Sense Media, parents say that the first book in Roth's series is inappropriate for children under the age of thirteen.
However, for parents of young readers who believe their children can understand the content of the Divergent series in a different way can proceed with caution. After all, the subjects teen dystopian novels have been covering over the past few years are exposing young readers to more than just cute boys and broken hearts.
