5. Divergent by Veronica Roth

In Tris’ Chicago, society is composed of five factions. In her world, the age of maturity is sixteen. That is when  a person’s true faction is determined. Their choice can mean being separated from their families to live a life in a faction they were not born into, but it’s a choice that can allow them to be who they really are.

Tris’ choice surprises everyone even herself, but the choice was hers. Now she must struggle along with her fellow initiates as they prove their loyalty and devotion to the faction they selected.

The tests they endure aren’t simply rigorous, they can be deadly. And there’s a growing conflict in their society that’s threatening to destroy everything. Tris might find herself in the middle of a rebellion with a secret she’s been hiding that could change the world she knows.

Divergent is the first book in a series with the same name. The book is available in print, audio, and e-book format. The books were adapted into a film series starring Shailene Woodley (The Fault in Our Stars) and Theo James (Sanditon).
