Divergent - Veronica Roth

Tris (or Beatrice) lives in a future Chicago where young people are encouragedto cultivate specific virtues: honesty, selflessness, courage, serenity or rationality.When they turn 16, they are prompted to select one of the virtues, and thendevote the rest of their lives to it. The purpose of it all is to make society asperfect as possible.

When it´s Tris´s time to choose she she rejects the group her family belongs toand joins another. This chose makes it impossible for her to go back home to her family. She begins the brutal initiation rites, meets a cute boy (of course;)) butalso detects a growing dissent in the "perfect society".

This is the first installment in a planned trilogy that will be a film.
