    • Thank you for your post about how Divergent connects to 2017. I really enjoyed reading your opinions on your book and reading the connection that you found in terms of segregation. One thing I was confused about was your discussion of coercion. I believe you are confused by this term. You said, “here was a time where she shows Tris doing a coercion by breaking the glass from the in the test.” However, coercion is something a government does to its people in order to get them to follow them. But, in this case Tris is actually rebelling against the coercion of the government and is illustrating anti-consent. Look forward to reading more about you and hearing more about your book.

    • Hi Juan,

      I appreciate your interest in exploring the effects of drugs on teens. I believe it is important to be educated, but especially educated on something that may influence severe health and social relational issues. Like you said using one-time can lead to addiction and even lead the teen to steal from family. In my experience I have had peers that have had this happen to them. It would be great if every teen realized that drugs have long-term effects that could negatively impact their academic future.

    • Dear, Cecilia
      Thank you for writing me a comment and agreeing with me in the fact that young teens taking drugs can have a negative effect. Also, thank you for sharing some information about your perspective of the effects of the drugs. Additionally, I would like to learn more about your peers who have been negatively affected by the drugs.
      Sincerely, Juan
