Zootopia is a Disney movie in where a small bunny becomes Zootopia's first bunny cop. Zootopia is a city like no other. It is comprised of neighborhoods like Sahara Square and Tundratown and many more, and is a melting pot where animals from every environment live together. Zootopia is a place where no matter what you are, you can be anything. The main character, Judy Hopps, is struggling to become a "real cop," as she is placed on the lowest duties of a cop in Zootopia.  To prove herself, she partners with a scam artist fox to solve the mystery.

Divergent by Veronica Roth

Divergent is about a society that is divided up by five factions. When someone turns sixteen, they choose one and stay in it permanently. Tris is a girl born into an Abnegation family (for the selfless) but when the time came, she chose to be a dauntless (for the brave). Though when she took the test to see which faction would fit her best, her results were inconclusive because she was divergent.

Divergent was an amazing dystopian! It is fast paced and action packed. I really liked seeing Tris evolving throughout the story as a courageous person. The author did such a good job of putting the story together and especially connecting the characters to the reader. She also did not rush the romance at all, which many authors are eager to do.
