One Book Charleston County: Book Discussions

Bring a friend or meet new ones to discuss the images and issues raised in Veronica Roth's novel, Divergent. Set in the future, the book critically examines society through the eyes of a girl facing difficult life decisions and the consequences of her choices.  

Check out some Divergent discussion questions. Book discussion questions also are included at the end of Divergent.          


With brisk pacing and lavish flights of imagination, Divergent clearly has thrills, but it also movingly expores a more common adolescent anxiety -- the painful realization that coming into one's own sometimes means leaving family behind, both ideologically and physically. - New York Times Book Review.
