About the Book:

In Beatrice Prior’s dystopian Chicago, society is divided into five factions, each dedicated to the cultivation of a particular virtue – Candor (the honest), Abnegation (the selfless), Dauntless (the brave), Amity (the peaceful), and Erudite (the intelligent). On an appointed day of every year, all sixteen-year-olds must select the faction to which they will devote the rest of their lives. For Beatrice, the decision is between staying with her family and being who she really is – she can’t have both. So she makes a choice that surprises everyone, including herself.

During the highly competitive initiation that follows, Beatrice renames herself Tris and struggles to determine who her friends really are – and where, exactly, a romance with a sometimes fascinating, sometimes infuriating boy fits into the life she’s chosen. But Tris also has a secret, one she’s kept hidden from everyone because she’s been warned it can mean death. And as she discovers a growing conflict that threatens to unravel her seemingly perfect society, she also learns that her secret might help her save those she loves…. or it might destroy her.

About the Author:

She wrote her first book, Divergent, while on winter break in her senior year at Northwestern University, and found an agent by the following March. Her career took off rapidly with the success of her first novel, with the publishing rights sold before she graduated from college in 2010 and the film rights sold mid-March 2011, before the novel was printed in April 2011. Her first two novels sold over five million copies worldwide by fall 2013, just as the film based on the first novel was wrapping up.

Roth sold the film rights to The Divergent Series to Summit Entertainment. Filming of Divergent, the adaptation of the first book in the series, was started in April 2013, and the film was released in March 2014. On March 21, 2014, Lionsgate officially greenlit the film adaptation of Insurgent. The film was released on March 20, 2015. On April 11, 2014, Summit Entertainment announced that the third book, Allegiant, would be split into two films, part 1 and part 2. Former Part 1 is called The Divergent Series: Allegiant, and was released on March 18, 2016, and former Part 2 is named The Divergent Series: Ascendant, and was scheduled to be released on March 24, 2017. The theatrical release for Ascendant was cancelled in favor of it being a television film and spinoff series. The television film and spinoff series were later cancelled.

About the Disney Character: Anna is the perfect fairytale character; unflappable, she is the forever optimist. Anna is fine as long as she has her family, Arendelle is safe, and she never has to be alone again.

Anna is the princess of Arendelle from the movies Frozen and Frozen 2. She loves to have fun, eat chocolate, but more than anything she loves her sister Elsa. She also loves her fiancé Kristoff and her friends Olaf and Sven.

Anna remained big-hearted and optimistic, albeit socially awkward. When her sister Elsa incidentally triggered an eternal winter and ran off, Anna embarked on a perilous journey to save her kingdom and mend the broken bond between herself and her sister.

Three years after her adventure, Anna, Elsa, and their friends embarked on another journey to confront the elemental spirits of the Enchanted Forest. Upon their journey’s end, Elsa remained in the forest to join the spirits, while Anna was crowned Queen of Arendelle.
