I wrote a bunch about Divergent the week it came out, and then I found out that my thirteen-year-old cousin Abby is super into Divergent so I decided I should interview and get the scoop about what I was missing by only seeing the movie. Abby reads a lot and is awesome. Herewith, our chat:
JESSE: So when did you first read the Divergent books?
ABBY: Over the summer.
JESSE: How did you find out about them?
ABBY: I saw one of my friends had read it, and I saw stuff on the internet that said they were really good books.
JESSE: And I assume you’ve read all three by now?
ABBY: Yeah. It was quite the wait to get to read Allegiant though. That came out in October.
JESSE: Did you know then that a movie was coming out?
ABBY: I can’t quite remember…I don’t think I knew then but after I had read it I saw something online.
JESSE: And generally you were super happy with how the movie came out?
ABBY: Yeah, pretty much. Only a couple scenes I thought would have been really good to be put in the movie.
JESSE: You mentioned something about a butter knife scene. What was that about?
