Book Cover Divergent
Veronica Roth

This book is set in Chicago in the future, in a dystopian society. The city of Chicago is split into five factions. The factions are Amity, the peaceful, Abnegation, the selfless, Candor, the honest, Dauntless, the brave, and Erudite, the intelligent. Every sixteen-year-old has to choose their faction at a ceremony. The main character, Tris, is torn between her home, Abnegation, and Dauntless. What happens next would be spoiling everything, so I can't tell you more! I recommend this for ages 12 and up because it is very violent and sometimes sad.
