The debut novel of the American author Veronica Roth, "Divergent" takes place in a dystopian Chicago; the first installment in a trilogy. Set in the city of Chicago in the near future. The city is divided into 5 factions: Abnegation, meant for the selfless; Amity, meant for the peaceful; Candor, meant for the honest; Dauntless, meant for the brave; and Erudite, meant for the knowledgeable. On a given day each year, all sixteen-year-olds take an aptitude test that will tell them for which faction they are best suited. After receiving the results of their test, they must decide whether to remain with their family or transfer to a new faction; however, there is a glitch in the system. What happens when the test results are unclear? Well you will have to read to find out. “Divergent” has been compared to such novels as the “The Hunger Games”. This is must read!!
Sleepy Hill Middle School students use Accelerated Reader in all grade levels. AR helps teachers to mange and monitor your child's independent reading practice. Your child chooses a book at his or her reading level and takes a short quiz on the computer when finished with each book. Best of all, they learn and grow at their own pace!
AR BookFinder is a FREE online tool to help you search for Accelerated Reader Books. Every AR book title & quiz information can be found here! The Quick Search tab in AR Bookfinder works somewhat like a Google search when you type keywords into the blank field. AR BookFinder Help is located in the upper right hand corner for more information about specific features. Get started TODAY!
