Veronica Roth’s Divergent trilogy has captured the hearts and thoughts of millions of readers.
In Divergent Thinking, YA authors explore even more of Tris and Tobias’ world, including:
- What Divergent’s factions have in common with one of psychology’s most prominent personality models
- The biology of fear: where it comes from and how Tris and the other Dauntless are able to overcome it
- Full-page maps locating all five faction headquarters and other series landmarks in today’s Chicago, based on clues from the books
- Plus a whole lot more, from why we love identity shorthand like factions to Tris’ trouble with honesty to the importance of choice, family, and being brave
With a dozen smart, surprising, mind-expanding essays on all three books in the trilogy, Divergent Thinking provides a companion fit for even the most Erudite Divergent fan.
