    Sixteen-year-old Julia Phillips buries herself in guilt after killing her best friend, Monica, in a car accident. Julia awoke in the hospital with a broken leg, a new talent for drawing, and false memories of the accident, in which she dies and Monica lives. The doctors attribute this to her head injury, but no one can explain how a bracelet engraved with her name ended up at the scene of the accident. A bracelet no one has ever seen before.

    "Ninety-five days, and then I'll be safe. I wonder whether the procedure will hurt. I want to get it over with. It's hard to be patient. It's hard not to be afraid while I'm still uncured, though so far the deliria hasn't touched me yet. Still, I worry. They say that in the old days, love drove people to madness. The deadliest of all deadly things: It kills you both when you have it and when you don't."

    Story

    The narration of this book is, hands down, the best I've heard. Makes it like participating in a live performance! So much energy and emotion. The story itself is very thoughtful and detailed, you really get to know the characters. I will stand in line if necessary for both the author's and narrator's works.

    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.

    Grant says: "It's not for me. Loved it anyway."
    "Absolutely. Loved. It!"

    Story

    The concept of this story was well thought ou,t as were the main characters. Four is a mysterious boy with a secretly golden heart and is the perfect match for Tris who has a sense of bravery I have yet to see in a 16 yr old. This story was so compelling, I might just listen again! And cannot wait for Insurgent!
