Now a major motion picture series, this is a book that is set in a dystopian post-apocalyptic version of Chicago. We see what is left of civilization after nuclear fall-out operating under a rigid and fascinating system. The population is divided into factions, each providing important services for the whole. Amity farms, Dauntless protects the weak, etc. On her step into adulthood, Tris has to choose which faction she will join. Unfortunately, the test to help her decide shows that she is different than most, and poses a danger to the state. Reading how she handles her Divergent nature is fascinating, and offers a strange, yet pertinent look at our own society.
