Houston! Join us and Katy Budget Books this weekend for the premiere of DIVERGENT!

DIVERGENT premieres Thursday March 20 at Vintage Park and Mason Park and tickets are now on sale! No matter which faction you choose you’ll enjoy director Neil Burger’s adaptation, which is both a thrilling adventure and thoughtful examination of the dark side of human nature.

Based on the best-selling novel by Veronica Roth, DIVERGENT follows the journey of Tris Prior (Shailene Woodley), who comes of age in a dystopian version of Chicago. In this future world, the city is divided into communities based on character traits, but when Tris takes the test to determine her faction, she discovers that her abilities defy all classification. Labeled as a Divergent and hunted by the government as an anomaly, Tris chooses to hide herself amidst Dauntless, a fearless crew of warriors responsible for the city's security.

She may be safe from the outside world, but now Tris must face the Dauntless initiation, a brutal onslaught of combat and mind games. Thankfully, her instructor happens to be a smoldering slice of sexy named Four (Theo James), and together, they just might survive long enough to take down the oppressive government regime.

In addition, Katy Budget Books will be on hand Friday, March 21 from 3 PM - 9 PM at Mason Park to join in on the DIVERGENT celebration. They will be available to sell you the next book in the DIVERGENT series, talk about the next big thing in Young Adult literature, or simply nerd out over Tris and Four’s budding relationship.

"As an introduction to a series, I think Divergent is better than The Hunger Games." - Brian Formo, HitFix

"Woodley, at every turn, lets us feel as if we're in her shoes, not so much Dauntless as thrillingly daunted." - Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly
