Roth is no newbie to having her books turned into films. She is the author of the famous divergent saga that is spawned into three movies.
After her two young adult book series, she entered into the adult fiction space genre and is writing a book called “chosen ones.”
Describing her first adult fiction novel, the story is about five teenagers. The plot star’ts in Chicago, where magic is real and follows five teens who defeat a villain called dark one almost ten years ago and now fast forward, into their adulthood, they find out their mission is not completed at all.
