Divergent by Veronica Roth
Call Number: CL YA Rot40d 2011
In a future Chicago, sixteen-year-old Beatrice Prior must choose. 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). Raised as Abnegation, Beatrice has a choice, stay with her family in Abnegation or choose another faction and turn her back on them forever.
The problem is, she also has a secret, one she's kept hidden from everyone because she's been warned it can mean death. And as she discovers unrest and growing conflict that threaten to unravel her seemingly perfect society, she also learns that her secret might help her save those she loves . . . or it might destroy her.
