I loved this book so much I've read it multiple times.
The Hunger Games Trilogy
A disappointment. This book won YA novel of the year. I like the setting in a dystopian Chicago and the idea of factions, but the protagonist's "growth" was more of a devolution into immaturity. A clever idea, but it feels like the book just lost direction after the initial good start.
Prodigy by Marie Lu (Book # 2 in the Legend Series)
In Beatrice Prior’s dystopian Chicago world, 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.
