divergent at the pool.

my current book fling and i went down to the pool earlier this week. we had a lovely time together. even though our relationship wont last long (they never do...) i'm glad to call it, Divergent, my first summer book fling of the year.
Divergent was written by Veronica Roth, a 22 year old Northwestern grad who wrote the book late at night when she was supposed to be doing her homework.

here's a little diddy of what dystopian thriller is about:
"welcome to dystopian Chicago, where Beatrice Prior loves her family and yearns to be seen for who she really is, and where the ways of her carefully ordered society demand that sixteen-year-olds make a dramatic decision that will determine the rest of their lives. torn between betraying those she loves and listening to her own inner voice, Tris's unexpected choice surprises everyone-including herself. but her bold decision soon leads to powerful questions and terrifying truths about what exactly her "perfect society" has become..."
Susan Katz
president & publisher
HarperCollins Children's Books

i'd recommend picking it up. especially if you enjoy dystopian literature which is all the rage right now. (i.e. The Hunger Games, Matched, Delirium, Uglies) and if you like getting ahead of the game on brand new series, now is a good time to get Divergent. it was just released on the 11th.

what's your current book fling?
(defenition of a book fling: book you are currently reading.)

I've heard really good things about this book! I'm definitely intrigued- hopefully it lives up to the expectations.
