by Veronica Roth

Beatrice Prior is a unique character. She grew up in one of many factions. Abnegation is a value found in her parents and brother, but not her. To be Abnegation is to be selfless. Beatrice finds it difficult to fit into her own family. After taking an an aptitude test, and discovering that she is in fact, different, Beatrice is faced with a new problem: Who is she? What faction will she pick at the Choosing Ceremony?'

I enjoyed this book because it really expresses the beauty of being different, and maybe even helping you find yourself. Imagine yourself as one of the teens at the Choosing Ceremony. What virtues do you most relate to? 

Everyone should read this. Despite some romantic text, this is a truly great story.
