The Millburn Middle School Library sponsored a weeklong trivia contest to celebrate the release of the movie “Divergent” based on a popular young adult novel of the same name. 

“Divergent” was by far the most popular book this school year among the middle school students, according to MMS Media Specialist Amy Ipp. All the winners received “Divergent”-themed prizes. 

Millburn’s Bow-Tie Cinema also donated movie tickets for the grand prize winners, Adrien Chehade and Jennifer Shan, who were selected from all of the correct answers from the week.

In addition, avid reader Anushka Somani was recognized for checking out the most books this school year. She checked out more than 100 books.
