I first started to seek out more dystopian young adult fiction after reading The Hunger Games (like many others I suspect) and this was a title I kept seeing crop up, so I decided to check it out. The book tells the story of Beatrice, who is approaching the time of her life in which she will have to choose which "faction" (sections of society based on specific traits) she will choose to live with, and whether or not to isolate herself from her family. These books can start to feel a little formulaic once you've read a few, but I still found this story/concept to be gripping and exciting which says a lot. The book focusses on a great group of charatcers which helps keep the story interesting, and the undercurrent of suspense and knowing that something has to give makes you keep reading. A must read if you loved THG.
