In a future Chicago, 16-year-old Beatrice Prior must choose among five predetermined factions to define her identity for the rest of her life, a decision made more difficult when she discovers that she is an anomaly who does not fit into any one group, and that the society she lives in is not perfect after all.
From the Publisher:

One choice

One choice decides your friends, defines your beliefs, and determines your loyalties . . . forever.

Or, one choice can transform you.

In Veronica Roth's debut novel, Divergent, a perfect society unfolds into a dystopian world of electrifying decisions, stunning consequences, heartbreaking betrayals, and unexpected romance.

Annotation:
Similar to the dystopian young adult fiction of Suzanne Collins and Scott Westerfeld, this intense story follows the fortunes of almost 16-year-old Beatrice as she grapples with a future imposed on her by society. In Beatrice's world, there are five very different factions, Abnegation, Amity, Candor, Dauntless, and Erudite, each requiring lifetime allegiance to a particular lifestyle. Growing up in Abnegation, Beatrice is sick of self-denial, and when the time comes to decide on her chosen faction, she shocks her family and herself. However, she harbors a deadly secret that threatens the very fabric of her world. The author was in college when she wrote DIVERGENT.

Praise

"Riveting. Roth has taken the standard sci-fi dystopia and transformed it into an action-packed psychological thriller with romance." (top pick) - Raven Haller 05/01/2011
