Just finished "Divergent" by Veronica Roth and its follow-up title "Insurgent." There is a third in the trilogy yet to come.
LOVE IT! For anyone who enjoyed Hunger Games, this is for you.
The basic premiss is that at age 16, kids must choose their future friends, beliefs, and loyalties by deciding which faction they will become a part of for the rest of their lives. The factions - Abnegation (The Selfless), Erudite (The Intelligent), Dauntless (The Brave), Candor (The Honest), and Amity (The Peaceful) - are each completely different. Originally from Abnegation, Tris must decide whether to stay with her family or choose a different faction and leave them forever. After taking the aptitude test, Tris realizes her choice is hers and hers alone. On the heals of the Choosing Ceremony, she becomes the center of a deadly civil "disagreement" among factions.
Good stuff, people. Check it out:)
