Divergent by Veronica Roth

Plot (taken from

She turns to face the future in a world that's falling apart. For sixteen-year-old Tris, the world changes in a heartbeat when she is forced to make a terrible choice. Turning her back on her family, Tris ventures out, alone, determined to find out where she truly belongs. Shocked by the brutality of her new life, Tris can trust no one. And yet she is drawn to a boy who seems to both threaten and protect her. The hardest choices may yet lie ahead...A debut novel that will leave you breathless.

Rating 5*- I do not think I will be able to express the amount of enjoyment and entertainment I had when I read this novel. I truly was breathless after finishing the first in the series. It has to be the best novel I have read (maybe excluding Harry Potter- but maybe that is overrated now). If you’re not one to read, the rights have been bought by Summit entertainment and will be released in 2014.

I cannot recommend this novel enough. The use of the different factions (Abnegation, Dauntless, Amity, Candor and Erudite) shows the way in which the society is split. “Faction before blood”, that is the motto and without your complete loyalty you will end factionless.

Tris is a fantastic character, written in the 1st person you see events from her point of view and her strength and willingness to fight is truly inspirational, in a society that may become reality.
