Divergent by Veronica Roth

Summary: 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. 

Rating: 4 Stars

Genres: YA, Dystopian, Romance, 

Rad Review: I've read a lot of the popular genre Dystopian lately. Divergent is one of them. And it was spectacular. Veronica bursts into the world with her 2011 debut about a futuristic society with  a beautiful book. I loved a whole lot about this book. The characters, the world, the setting, the development of the story, the plot, everything. 

Yes, there were some cliche moments. But the overall driving force of this book pushed past it all. Simply "electrifying". 

Content: Mild
Sexual: (Kissing, a slight instance where Tris is seen naked. Very brief)
No language.
Violence: Moderate for the fighting scenes. Not graphic or overdone

With a Movie deal, and the sequel coming out on May Day, you'll want to read this if you haven't already. Great Dystopian read.
