Veronica Roth Addresses the Allegiant Leak

Divergent fans, I know how crazy we've all been in waiting (not so patiently) for Allegiant to release. Well, a few fans in Canada already received their copies to do an error. I know, it is surprising, and I'm sure upsetting to some. Believe me, I understand the "If some spoils it for me I won't be happy!" comments, because someone got a copy of Clockwork Princess EARLY as well, and totally RUINED the entire ending of the book for me, before I even had it in my hands. TRUST ME, I am really worried about someone spoiling the ending as well. HOPEFULLY that won't happen though.

Veronica took a moment to address is personally on her blog today here. This is what she said,
Hey guys. 
I found out earlier today that a very small number of readers received finished copies of Allegiant already, instead of on October 22nd, due to a Canadian shipping error that has since been fixed. I'm disappointed, and I'm sure you are too. I personally have been waiting, pretty much since the trilogy began, for the day when the last book would come out and we would all experience it together--you for the first time and me, with the giddy anticipation of an author who finally gets to watch everyone finish the story that has been so dear to me. That's why I've been so secretive for so long! But accidents and errors just happen sometimes.
If you are one of the people who received Allegiant early: I would love it if you wanted to wait to read it until October 22nd alongside your fellow Initiates. However, I can't blame you if that's just not going to work for you. I do ask, no matter what you decide, that out of kindness and respect for your fellow Divergent readers and their reading experiences, you do not post spoilers or quotes anywhere. I know I can count on you to preserve the mystery with me-- I may be biased, but I think I have the best readers ever. 
Everyone else: I think we're still going to have a great October 22nd (and weeks immediately following). Be very wary of what you read online, and we'll come out of this just fine. 
Author out.
If you have a copy of Allegiant, I'm so excited for you, but please don't spoil the ending for the rest of us. :)
