30 Day Divergent Challenge: Day 26

Day 26: A Scene that Surprised You

     The scene that surprised me most was when Four was under Erudite control because of a special serum. While the Dauntless were all in a trance from simulation serum, but Tris, Four, and the Divergent weren’t affected by the serum. Four and Tris get captures, and Jeanine put a new serum in Tobias/Four that controlled him to think bad was good and good was bad. He was Divergent, like Tris, and I thought he couldn’t be controlled, but I guess the new serum was even stronger.

Day 26: A Book that Changed Your Opinion

     A book that changed my opinion was Success for Teens. Yes, I know that it sounds cheesy, but it’s a very good book. I got it free and started reading it out of boredom. The book changed my philosophy in doing things the right way. It gave so much good advice that I use and still refer to the book today, despite the fact that I read it years ago. Although, I feel that this book could be meant for all ages.

Day 25: Favorite Moment in Insurgent

     My favorite moment in Insurgent would be when Christina gives Tris a hug to show that she forgives Tris. In Divergent, Tris was under attack by the Dauntless who were under the simulation serum. Tris didn’t know that when she shot at a Dauntless she shot Will, her friend/Christina’s boyfriend. Tris held the secret from Christina, but Christina found out in an inopportune way. Instead of getting mad and hating Tris, she hugged her and forgave her since the guilt was enough to drive Tris crazy.

Day 25: Favorite Book You Read in School

     My favorite book I read in school has to be the Odyssey. The Odyssey is just awesome and it’s been awesome for centuries. It includes action, adventure, and mythology, which are are a few books I look for in books. Mythology isn’t always what I look for, but the others I do.

Day 24: Favorite Moment in Divergent

     My favorite moment in Divergent would be the Ferris Wheel scene. The best part is when Tris and Four climb up the Ferris Wheel ladder. Tris climbed the Ferris Wheel as if she was fearless, but Four struggled with his fear of heights. Four was able to swallow his fear or forget it to see Tris’s brilliance and also the nice view from the top of the Ferris Wheel.

Day 24: A Book You Wish More People Would Read

     A book that I wish more people would read is Awaken by Katie Kacvinsky. This book, and its sequel (Middle Ground), I absolutely love. It’s my 2nd favorite series. This book is probably the closest to what the world or the USA can come to because of today’s events. Imagine it like this:

                 School shootings continue occurring and increase because of bullying or psychos. The best option is to shelter everyone in their homes and everything gets done on the computer. That includes jobs, school and dating(!). Will that be enough or will people rebel?

Day 23: Most Suspenseful Moment

     The most suspenseful event for me was when the scores for the initiate training was posted. The 1st list was more suspenseful because it was less predictable and Tris could have been put basically anywhere on the list. The 2nd list was more predictable, but still interesting to see where all the initiates landed in rank.
