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 conflict that threatens to unravel her seemingly perfect society, she also learns that her secret might help her save those she loves...
I absolutely cannot wait for Divergent to be released in May! I am a huge fan of Dystopian novels, and the plot of this story sounds really fascinating! Having just finished reading The Hunger Games this morning (review to come soon!), I can't help but wonder how similar this book will be to Suzanne Collin's novel. They both seem to have the whole separation of North America into factions thing going on. Nevertheless, I will defiantly be in Chapters to hunt it down when it comes out, because there is no way I'll be able to wait on the already super long library hold list!
