|Awhile back, we read a book called The Scorpio Races. It's YA. It's about this annual race on this island where the men race Water Horses. One year a girl decides to enter the race. There's another kid who is like the water horse whisperer, and he usually wins. My mama liked it because she likes books where girls don't stay in their "place." It's by Maggie Steifvater.
Now we're reading the second book in the Divergent series. Also YA. A city is divided into 5 factions: Dauntless, Abnegation, Erudite, Candor, and Amity. They each work together for the good of the city. As a kid, you're raised within your faction, but when you come of age, you get tested, and then you either stay with your faction or go to another faction as determined by your response to the simulation tests. Usually everything goes smoothly, but sometimes, somebody is Divergent, and then all meow breaks loose, mol!
