Even virtues can go bad in a futuristic Chicago where everyone but the factionless belong to either Abnegation, Erudite, Candor, Amity or Dauntless.  At sixteen, Tris chooses to become Dauntless, a choice that takes her away from her family and the values ingrained in her.  Initiation involves fighting, intimidation and fear simulations that small, skinny Tris manipulates because of her divergence.  Being divergent means Tris has qualities from more than one faction, and it also means those with power will want her dead once they find out.

Veronica Roth’s Divergent is an enthralling, action-packed story with compelling characters (who can resist Four?) and two more books coming to complete the trilogy.
