Today is an exciting day for our May Book of the Month … not only are we announcing this month’s contest, BUT … Divergent by Veronica Roth is now in stores!!! Yes, sir, you can now pop into your local book store and snatch up your very own, finished copy of Divergent. And we highly recommend that you do. This is one of the best books of the year so-far, and you definitely don’t want to miss out on everything it holds in store.
In Divergent, everyone at the age of 16 must choose to join one of five factions within their society:
* Abnegation, the selfless
* Erudite, the intelligent
* Dauntless, the brave
* Amity, the peaceful
* Candor, the honest
So for this month’s contest, we want you to tell us: Which faction would YOU choose to join & why?
Now, don’t worry if you haven’t read Divergent and aren’t sure what all these factions really mean. All next week, we’ll be focusing on each faction (one per day), to help you learn more and make your choice. And for fun, you can also take the “faction” quiz on Facebook, created by HarperTeen!
Once you’ve decided, just fill out the Novel Novice Divergent Contest Entry Form, telling us your choice in 150-300 words. Winners will be chosen based on quality of these entries!
Five (5) winners will each receive a finished copy of Divergent, courtesy of HarperTeen & temporary tattoos based on the factions in the book!
