American and British authors have done a lot in writing real science fiction and young adult books and novels. The Knife of Never Letting Go is another book that is like Divergent. The Guardian has commented on the author of the book Patrick Ness as: “He turned to children’s fiction after he had the idea for a world where it is impossible to escape information overload, and knew it was right for teenagers.” An interesting story of a small world that has been set by a group of Christian settlers, where boys change into men after thirteen cycles of thirteen months.
