Four by Veronica Roth. 2014. HarperCollins Publishers. Goodreads.

Two years before Beatrice Prior made her choice, the sixteen-year-old son of Abnegation’s faction leader did the same. Tobias’s transfer to Dauntless is a chance to begin again. Here, he will not be called the name his parents gave him. Here, he will not let fear turn him into a cowering child.

Newly christened “Four,” he discovers during initiation that he will succeed in Dauntless. Initiation is only the beginning, though; Four must claim his place in the Dauntless hierarchy. His decisions will affect future initiates as well as uncover secrets that could threaten his own future—and the future of the entire faction system.

Two years later, Four is poised to take action, but the course is still unclear. The first new initiate who jumps into the net might change all that. With her, the way to righting their world might become clear. With her, it might become possible to be Tobias once again.

From #1 New York Times bestselling author Veronica Roth comes a companion volume to the worldwide bestselling DIVERGENT series, told from the per-spective of the immensely popular character Tobias. The four pieces included here—THE TRANSFER, THE INITIATE, THE SON, and THE TRAITOR—plus three additional exclusive scenes, give readers an electrifying glimpse into the history and heart of Tobias, and set the stage for the epic saga of the DIVERGENT trilogy.

If you didn’t watch the video I’ll do a quick written out review.

I loved reading Four! It was really fun to get to know him better. I think I might favor him as a character now over Tris. She is still awesome, but Four is unique. I found out more about him than I knew after reading three books where he was the side character.

All four of the short books are entertaining. After the 4 short books are 3 short stories where Four gets to know Tris. It was fun to see his thoughts and feelings during the Divergent book.

Read the Divergent trilogy first then read Four. It’s a book you’ll love!

    1. Book 3- Allegiant was not my favorite read for more than 1 reason. So I just pretended like that book never happened and read FOUR. Four became a fave character. I totally understand why your daughter doesn’t want to read it though.
