Divergent by Veronica Roth
The story takes place in dystopic Chicago where people are divided into 5 factions – Abnegation, Candor, Erudite, Amity & Dauntless. Each of these factions represent a particular role in the society which brings peace and orderly.
When a child reaches the age of 16, the child goes through the Choosing Ceremony where he gets to decide his faction. Once the decision is made, the child undergoes a series of initiation and tests to prove his worth. If he is unsuccessful, he is removed from the faction and becomes one of the factionless. The peaceful and orderly society becomes out of control when some of the members and the factionless fight over its leadership.
