by Veronica Roth
From Goodreads:
In Beatrice Prior's dystopian Chicago, society 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). On an appointed day of every year, all sixteen-year-olds must select the faction to which they will devote the rest of their lives. For Beatrice, the decision is between staying with her family and being who she really is—she can't have both. So she makes a choice that surprises everyone, including herself.  
During the highly competitive initiation that follows, Beatrice renames herself Tris and struggles to determine who her friends really are—and where, exactly, a romance with a sometimes fascinating, sometimes infuriating boy fits into the life she's chosen. But Tris also has a secret, one she's kept hidden from everyone because she's been warned it can mean death. And as she discovers a growing conflict that threatens to unravel her seemingly perfect society, she also learns that her secret might help her save those she  loves… or it might destroy her.

Why this book is on my wishlist? Because everyone loves it!! 
I think I'll be the last person on earth who still has to read it but I promise, I'll fix that soon. In fact, I just won a contest and I picked as a prize, a paperback copy of Divergent. I can't wait to read it!
Moreover I love distophian novels; since I've read The Hunger Games' trilogy I'm desperately searching for a good distophian series, that will give me shivers, as THG did.

Have you already read Divergent? What do you think about it?
