    Veronica Roth&;s Divergent trilogy (Divergent, Insurgent, Allegiant) has captured the hearts and thoughts of millions of readers. In Divergent Thinking, YA authors explore even more of Tris and Tobias&; world, including:

    • What Divergent&;s factions have in common with one of psychology&;s most prominent personality models
    • The biology of fear: where it comes from and how Tris and the other Dauntless are able to overcome it
    • Full-page maps locating all five faction headquarters and other series landmarks in today&;s Chicago, based on clues from the books
    • Plus a whole lot more, from why we love identity shorthand like factions to Tris&; trouble with honesty to the importance of choice, family, and being brave

    With a dozen smart, surprising, mind-expanding essays on all three books in the trilogy, Divergent Thinking provides a companion fit for even the most Erudite Divergent fan.
