Looking back it is so crazy how far Veronica Roth has come. I remember reading her blog WAY before she was ever published, and now pretty much everyone knows her name. It's kind of inspirational really. I like to remember that everyone who has ever been successful with their work always started out as just some joe-shmo who wanted it just as badly as we all do. You've got to start somewhere...
Anyway. Here is a little about the book and the upcoming movie (if for some reason you've been living under a rock and have no clue what I'm talking about).
What if your whole world was a lie?What if a single revelation—like a single choice—changed everything?What if love and loyalty made you do things you never expected?
The faction-based society that Tris Prior once believed in is shattered—fractured by violence and power struggles and scarred by loss and betrayal. So when offered a chance to explore the world past the limits she’s known, Tris is ready. Perhaps beyond the fence, she and Tobias will find a simple new life together, free from complicated lies, tangled loyalties, and painful memories.
But Tris’s new reality is even more alarming than the one she left behind. Old discoveries are quickly rendered meaningless. Explosive new truths change the hearts of those she loves. And once again, Tris must battle to comprehend the complexities of human nature—and of herself—while facing impossible choices about courage, allegiance, sacrifice, and love.
