What is Divergent all about?
Veronica Roth wrote the Divergent series, a science fiction series for young adults. The story is set in a dystopian society with five factions: Candor (the honest), Abnegation, Dauntless, the brave, Amity (the peaceful), and Erudite (the smart).
To eliminate the possibility of any individual exercising their independent will, citizens are defined according to their social and personality-related affiliations. Beatrice Prior, who changes her name from Tris, is our guide. She is an Abnegation-born, Dauntless transfer. She must find her life as Divergent while hiding her true nature and risking being killed if she does.

There are three main books in the Divergent series written by Veronica Roth: “Divergent,” “Insurgent,” and “Allegiant.” In addition to these, there is also a collection of short stories titled “Four: A Divergent Collection” which includes four novellas.
