    I am 17 years old and I live in a rural town in South Dakota. Since I was little my goal in life has been to featured in a movie, and I see that change now. I read Divergent in a week, because it was super good! I then followed it up the next week with book two, and I fell in love! But I really liked how complex Roth made Four’s character. I am super excited to hear they are turning it into a movie!
