All I saw was a glass box around me. Water was coming in through a tube in the bottom. I didn’t know what to do. I tapped on the glass. It seemed unbreakable. When i tapped harder it started to break under the pressure of the water. Then It broke. I fell to the ground.

The Movie Divergent came out on March 21st . The movie is based on the book Divergent . There are three books in the series. The first book is Divergent. The second book is Insurgent. Lastly, the third book is Allegiant.

The movie/book is about a girl named Beatrice. The economy is split into factions that are named Candor, Erudite, Abnegation, Amity, and Dauntless. Candor is the faction that always tell the truth. They never lie at all. Erudite is a faction that thinks they should run the city because they are the smartest faction. Abnegation is the kindest faction because they help the factionless, people that are poor and have no food. Amity are the farmers and sometimes the doctors. Dauntless are the security guards that are really brave. They never back down from a fight or ziplines. Those are the factions.

The characters are Beatrice, also known as Tris who is played by Shailene Woodley, who is the main character. Four is one of the leaders of the faction that Tris goes into Theo James plays his part. Will who is played by Ben Lloyd, Christina played by Zoe Kravitz, Al played by Christian Madsen, and Peter played by Miles Teller are her friends from the faction she goes into. Eric is the leader of Her faction The actor named Jai Courtney plays his role. Her brother Caleb plays an Important part in the movie and book. Caleb is played by Ansel Elgort. Those are the characters that come up the most in the movie.

I will try not to give away spoilers on the movie. This is a summary of it: Beatrice is a girl in Abnegation. Everyone her age has to take the aptitude test which determines what faction you are in. She gets three factions which is unusual and is very rare. They call it Divergent. If anyone found out she would be killed right then and there. She kept it a secret from everyone until she let her divergence show. Thats all I can say without giving away the ending.

I would say that the movie was really good. You guys should see it when you can. I suggest it because it has action and romance all in one. That’s all I can give away so go see the movie to find out!
