Coming Soon to a Library Near You

Coming Soon to a Library Near You is a weekly feature inspired by Jill at Breaking the Spine that looks at upcoming books.

This Week’s Book: Divergent
Author: Veronica Roth
Release Date: May 2011
Summary: 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. 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.

I do love Dystopians, and this one has a bit of a City of Embers feel to it. Plus it’s also a start to a series!!

Sounds great. As a Chicagoan, I always love to read books set (even in the future) in Chicago.

Demitria: That's awesome that you're from Chicago. My husband and I are planning on going there for a visit this summer! Is there any great book stores? (I'll post this on your blog too)

Hi Katie - Chicago is a great city. There are few independent book stores, like Women and Children First in Andersonville and The Book Cellar in Logan Square...it just depends on where you're going to be staying...but public transportation is pretty easy here.
