Book 21 
Divergent, by Veronica Roth
The world of Young Adult Fiction split wide open when The Hunger Games became a best seller. All of a sudden people realized that there was a market for great stories that didn’t include any sex. Shocking, I know. 
I, for one, was grateful, because all of a sudden, Amazon and book stores started recommending these great gems that I would never have discovered otherwise. Divergent is such a book. 
I think I was at an airport when I downloaded it, and I was at my layover when I downloaded the sequel. And then I had to wait, and wait, and wait, and wait for the third book to come out. 
I wanted so badly to jump back into Roth’s dystopican society where everyone is divided into five factions, each dedicated to the cultivation of a particular virtue—Candor (the honest), Abnegation (the selfless), Dauntless (the brave), Amity (the peaceful), and Erudite (the intelligent). The heroine of the story, Tris, is given the option of choosing which faction she wants to join, her family’s or the one she’s really destined to join. Her decision sets an exciting course that you’ll follow along with the same edge-of-your-seat nail biting angst that I did, I’m sure. 
But you won’t have to wait over 18 months for the third book in the series because that book comes out at midnight tonight. You’re welcome.
