But each time, something good, no matter how small, stops him. Violet Markey lives for the future, counting the days until graduation, when she can escape her Indiana town and her aching grief in the wake of her sister’s recent death. When Finch and Violet meet on the ledge of the bell tower at school, it’s unclear who saves whom. And when they pair up on a project to discover the “natural wonders” of their state, both Finch and Violet make more important discoveries: It’s only with Violet that Finch can be himself—a weird, funny, live-out-loud guy who’s not such a freak after all. And it’s only with Finch that Violet can forget to count away the days and start living them. But as Violet’s world grows, Finch’s begins to shrink.</div><br /><br /></div> <div style='margin:0; padding:0; text-align:left;'> <a href='http://www.storysnoops.com/detail.php?id=1720'><img border='0' src='http://images.amazon.com/images/P/0062345214.01._PA00,10,10,10_BO30,225,225,225_SCLZZZZZZZ_SL130_.jpg' alt='book cover'><br />Four: A Divergent Collection</a> <br /> <div style='width:500px; margin:0; padding:0; text-align:left;'>Readers first encountered Tobias as "Four" in Divergent. His voice is an integral part of Allegiant. Readers will find more of this charismatic character's backstory told from his own perspective in Four: A Divergent Collection. When read together, these long narrative pieces illuminate the defining moments in Tobias's life. The first three pieces in this volume—"The Transfer," "The Initiate," and "The Son"—follow Tobias's transfer from Abnegation to Dauntless, his Dauntless initiation, and the first clues that a foul plan is brewing in the leadership of two factions. The fourth story, "The Traitor," runs parallel with the events of Divergent, giving readers a glimpse into the decisions of loyalty—and love—that Tobias makes in the weeks after he meets Tris Prior.</div><br /><br /></div> <div style='margin:0; padding:0; text-align:left;'> <a href='http://www.storysnoops.com/detail.php?id=1721'><img border='0' src='http://images.amazon.com/images/P/0312643004.01._PA00,10,10,10_BO30,225,225,225_SCLZZZZZZZ_SL130_.jpg' alt='book cover'><br />Rain Reign</a> <br /> <div style='width:500px; margin:0; padding:0; text-align:left;'>From the publisher: Rose Howard is obsessed with homonyms.
