Tweens rejoice! Divergent is just around the corner, which will undoubtedly cause millions of Twilight fans to squeal, then look up what “divergent” means. Happy times all around.

(Just like in real life, but, whatever. We’ll pretend that this is a radical idea.) If someone doesn’t fit nicely into one group or another, they’re labeled DISTINCT! No. That’s not right. DIVERGENT! And apparently, that’s a bad thing.

And so on. Divergency for everyone!
