We’re on week two of our DIVERGENT Faction Challenge, where participants tackle Veronica Roth’s factions from her amazing YA debut, DIVERGENT-–one faction at a time.  Last week we tried Abnegation.  Now, let’s be honest.  Abnegation week did not go so well. In fact, based on the blog posts I read, Abnegation was kicking un-selfless butt all across the country.

This week, I’m choosing an easier faction. Something…fun. Something…banjo-y.

(No, NOT the Deliverance type of banjo. Which is totally stuck in my head now. Awesome.)

Meep!

Those of you who’ve read the Divergent know I’m taking about AMITY, The Peaceful. The faction that got to ride around in farm clothes in the back of a truck, eating apples and strumming tunes while everyone else tried not to croak.

From the DIVERGENT fansite:

AMITY:

1. friendship; peaceful harmony.

2. mutual understanding and a peaceful relationship, especially between nations; peace; accord.

3. cordiality

It’s not just about banjos and apple-picking.* It’s about cultivating strong relationships and trying to understand each other.

*Whoa, wait a second.  This faction isn’t just about banjos?  CURSES.

Here’s what else Veronica says about Amity:

–Dresses in Red or Yellow

–Seem Kind, Loving and Free

–Understanding counselors and caretakers

 

What do you think?  Will this faction be easier than the last one?  Check back on Friday to find out!

    Won’t lie–I am pretty psyched about this Faction.

    This week is so not going to go well for me. Except perhaps the farm clothes part.

    oh YES! <3 The Divergent quiz on Facebook said I was most likely to be amity. Let's hope this goes easy for me!

    good luck!

    I have a sneaking suspicion that Amity and I may not get along. What does that say about me????

    Wow, so I just now posted my Abnegation post… but I have a semi-good reason. I’ll do better this week :-)
