Divergent by Veronica Roth

Synopsis from authors blog:

In Beatrice Prior's dystopian Chicago, society is divided into five factions, each dedicated to the cultivation of a particular virtue—Candor (the honest), Abnegation (the selfless), Dauntless (the brave), Amity (the peaceful), and Erudite (the intelligent). On an appointed day of every year, all sixteen-year-olds must select the faction to which they will devote the rest of their lives. For Beatrice, the decision is between staying with her family and being who she really is—she can't have both. So she makes a choice that surprises everyone, including herself.

During the highly competitive initiation that follows, Beatrice renames herself Tris and struggles to determine who her friends really are—and where, exactly, a romance with a sometimes fascinating, sometimes infuriating boy fits into the life she's chosen. But Tris also has a secret, one she's kept hidden from everyone because she's been warned it can mean death. And as she discovers a growing conflict that threatens to unravel her seemingly perfect society, she also learns that her secret might help her save those she loves… or it might destroy her.


I LOVED this book!!! If you liked Hunger Games...you will enjoy this one just as much! I enjoy books with a strong female character and Beatrice "Tris" is a determined girl trying to do the right thing. The 'dystopian' theme is really popular right now I am enjoying reading all the different books out there with this theme. It allows you to envision another world and wonder whether you could survive in such a world! Strong characters, great story and ending that leaves you wanting more!!! Luckily, the next book will be coming out next year called "Insurgent."
Rating: 5/5 stars
