Divergent by Veronica Roth

Will the world ever find perfection? In the future created by Veronica Roth, society has been divided into factions-Abnegation, Amity, Candor, Erudite and Dauntless. Choose for life or be factionless. Each faction values certain human characteristics above others and some factions don't like how other factions are doing things. When Tris chooses her faction, it changes her life forever. But she is not what she thinks, she is Divergent.

Roth's Divergent is yet another look at our world's future. After war has apparently destroyed society as we know it, the powers-that-be divide people into different factions. You choose your faction after your 16th birthday, choosing to stay with your family in the faction you were raised in or choosing to leave everything you know to start over in a new faction. The story grabs you in the beginning and holds you until the very end. The characters are believable and relatable. The burgeoning romances are tender, sweet and unpredictable. I didn't connect the dots in the story until the heroine, Tris did. I love a story where I don't figure it out before the main character does. This book is a great addition to the young adult genre. A definite keeper!

Fantastic read, I recommend it to anyone who is a fan of the young adult genre.
