Divergentby Veronica Roth

In a future dystopian Chicago, sixteen-year-old Beatrice Prior must choose among five predetermined factions to define her identity for the rest of her life. Each faction is dedicated to the cultivation of a particular virtue: Candor (the honest), Abnegation (the selfless), Dauntless (the brave), Amity (the peaceful), and Erudite (the intelligent). This choice is made more complicated when she discovers powerful secrets and truths about her identity, and that the society she lives in is not perfect after all. She also learns her secret might help her save those she loves... or it might destroy her.
