Books to Bond Over With Your Tween Reader

3. 'Divergent,' by Veronica Roth
In this dystopian Chicago world, society is divided into five factions—the honest, the selfless, the brave, the peaceful, and the intelligent. All sixteen-year-olds must select one faction to which they will devote their lives. 

Beatrice is faced with the decision between staying with her family and being who she really is—she can’t have both. She renames herself Tris. As initiation transforms her, Tris must determine both who her true friends are and if she will take a chance on romance. But she also has a secret that could help her save those she loves or may destroy her.
