I devoured this book. If you liked "The Hunger Games", you'll probably like this one, too.
Set in the dystopia of Chicago, people are separated into "factions", each representing a particular virtue. At the age of sixteen, each person chooses a faction to belong to forever. However, for some people, they're suited for more than one faction, and are known as "Divergent" -- and that's not a good thing. Being Divergent poses a threat to the faction -- being of two minds, two minds that are open to just the values of their home -- so they're all silent about their designation.
The book centers around the initiation into the faction, which is a brutal process not all survives. The main character, Tris, and trainer, Four, are really interesting to follow, and I was thrilled to learn this is a series (I just picked up the book on a whim).
