Divergent by Veronica Roth

Divergent by Veronica Roth book review Rebekah Koontz site

Divergent ruined my life.

Not ruined my life like my puppy died and I just dropped my pizza bagel on the ground, sauce-side down, but ruined my life as in any spectrum of reality I may have had a grasp on, completely vanished.

Suddenly, none of it mattered; I just had to finish this book.

“Good Grief” by Lotty Lolly Weston, Wilson Winston. Lolly Winston.

Lolly Winston.

I was really excited to read this book because I’m a writer, and it’s intriguing to find a book written about grief to be, “Filled with laugh-out-loud humor, struggles, triumphs, and plenty of midnight trips to the fridge…

Mostly, I read this book just to see if Ms. Winston could pull it off.
