When the adaptation of the dystopian trilogy Divergent hits the silver screen this spring, the popularity of Veronica Roth’s best-selling franchise is sure to become a stratospheric. WIth over 10 million copies already sold, Roth has established a place in the young adult canon alongside Twilight and The Hunger Games. What makes the story behind the story worth telling is that Roth banged out Divergent’s first installment while still a senior at Northwestern.
