  This short novella retells a vital divergent scene, (ch.13-              
        also known as the knife through scene.)    
 but this time, its all from Tobias Eaton aka Fours POV                    

       and I must say I really enjoyed seeing things through his 
       eyes and I can't wait to read the rest. 
                                                              
        Unfortunately, the three other remaining stories from 
        Fours perspective have been delayed till June next year, 
       but will undoubtably be worth the wait! They'll be 
       available for purchase as hardcover under title 
       Four: A divergent collection. So, y'all hang in there!

Synopsis:

135,789. That’s how many subscribers sixteen-year-old West Ryder has on his web vlog series. But he only has eyes for one of them. 



As one of the internet’s most prestigious video bloggers, West talks about high school relationships under the name “Sam Green.” As far as he knows, no one from school, not even his best friend, Cat, has seen his videos. But the highlight of the whole thing is Harper Knight, who comments every day at exactly 2:02 in the afternoon. He doesn’t know anything about her aside from the occasional deep philosophical messaging on why pizza tastes so delicious, but as stupid as it sounds, he might be falling for her. So when they finally agree to meet in real life, West’s hope for romance seems more and more in reach. But that all changes as soon as he arrives at their meeting spot and sees Cat walking toward him, wearing the same “I <3 Sam Green” T-shirt Harper promised she'd have on.




To his alarm, West realizes he is falling in love with the best friend who has always been a sister to him.

There's a lot more to this story than the blurb suggests so don't be fooled into thinking this is your average lighthearted sunday read- because it's SO much more.

Saving Francesca by Melina Marchetta  @MMarchetta1



A compelling story of romance, family, and friendship with humor and heart, perfect for fans of Stephanie Perkins and Lauren Myracle.

Francesca is stuck at St. Sebastian’s, a boys' school that pretends it's coed by giving the girls their own bathroom.  Her only female companions are an ultra-feminist, a rumored slut, and an impossibly dorky accordion player.  The boys are no better, from Thomas, who specializes in musical burping, to Will, the perpetually frowning, smug moron that Francesca can't seem to stop thinking about.
 
Then there's Francesca's mother, who always thinks she knows what's best for Francesca—until she is suddenly stricken with acute depression, leaving Francesca lost, alone, and without an inkling of who she really is.  Simultaneously humorous, poignant, and impossible to put down, this is the story of a girl who must summon the strength to save her family, hersocial life and—hardest of all—herself.
