Divergent was recommended because I like Hunger Games and the book did remind me of the Suzanne Collins Trilogy. The story is set some time in the future where society is broken down into factions categorized by a specific value. At age 16 each person is given the opportunity to either to stay with the faction they were born into or to choose another faction. Beatrice, born into the faction Abnegation, is told that she is divergent and therefore she could fit into numerous factions. She chooses Dauntless and thus begins what is literally a fight to survive while trying to make sense of what is happening.
