Veronica Roth graduated from Northwestern University with a degree in creative writing. While she was a student, she often chose to work on the story that would become 'Divergent' instead of doing her homework. It was indeed a transforming choice. Now a full-time writer, Ms Roth lives near Chicago. Her first novel, 'Divergent', was published by HarperCollins Children's Books in 2011.
Praise for DIVERGENT: A taut and shiveringly exciting read! Tris is exactly the sort of unflinching and fierce heroine I love. I couldn,t turn the pages fast enough. Melissa Marr, bestselling author of Wicked Lovely DIVERGENT is a captivating, fascinating book that kept me in constant suspense and was never short on surprises. It will be a long time before I quit thinking about this haunting vision of the future. James Dashner, author of 'The Maze Runner, Well-written and brilliantly executed, DIVERGENT is a heart-pounding debut that cannot be missed. Tris stands out in her action-packed, thrilling, and emotionally honest journey to determine who she wants to be in a society that demands she conform. It,s dystopian fiction at its best!
