generation t books

By Renee Schmutz-Sowards, circulation specialist at Boyd County Public Library I discovered Generation T sometime around 2007, when my awesome Mom sent me a copy. I was a young newlywed living far away from all my friends and family, and Mom, Dad and Brother had taken to sending the occasional box of fun and silly goodies from home.

DIVERGENT

August 9, 2012 by  

Divergent is the first book by Veronica Roth. She’s only 22, and Divergent was branded the Buzz Book of 2011. It’s sequel, Insurgent, was released earlier this year.  Yes, this is another multi-booker, which means I’ll have to wait another year to find out what happens after Insurgent, only to have to wait another year after that, probably, to get to the end.
