In preparation for the release of one of the most highly anticipated titles of the year, Veronica Roth’s Insurgent, you may have noticed that a number of folks around the blogosphere have started choosing factions. We’re thrilled to be a part of the Insurgent book release tour, repping the Abnegation Faction. As you know, Thea loved Divergent (it even made her top 10 of 2011).
Ta-da! Team Abnegation came in the mail!
Abnegation values selflessness in the service of others. They are volunteers, community service workers, and eschew anything that draws attention to them.
I will be my undoing
If I become my obsession.
I will forget the ones I love
If I do not serve them.
~From The Abnegation Faction Manifesto
We are thrilled to be involved in Divergent Nation and love the idea of bloggers being assigned factions. Heck, we love it so much that Thea even made it one of her final projects last fall at an NYU book publicity presentations. (Guess it had to have been a good idea, if Harper Collins decided to pick it up, right?) Interested in choosing a faction for yourself, on this very special faction choosing day?
