Highlighted Book for November- Divergent by Veronica Roth

Fit in or Else.

Once upon a time, in a future that's closer than you think, the United States of America as we know it is gone. The society that replaced it, after the wars and the ecological disasters is very carefully organized. Everyone has a place that is suited to the kind of person they are. These places are called factions, and there are five: Abnegation, Candor, Amity, Erudite, and Dauntless.

And because aggressive people who like to fight are all safely in Dauntless. they can lead sports teams and police security without troubling those who are different. Are you truthful? Kind? Clever? Peaceful? .Once you're a teenager, you're carefully tested. Everyone goes where they belong, and so the new society is safe. Faction is everything. Faction comes before family, before friends.

Until Beatrice fails the test. She could be brave, in Dauntless. She could be selfless, in Abnegation. Or maybe even more. She doesn't fit into the safe little boxes. So she's assigned to Dauntless. The technician who tested her warns her to fit in, at all costs. If anyone finds out just how different Tris is, she won't last long.

She's divergent.

And divergent means dead.
