    The Divergent Trilogy. Divergent is the only book I have EVER reread (and that says a lot about how much I like it!). I think it's better than the Hunger Games, and I have hooked three of my friends on the series. The first book is Divergent. The second book is Insurgent. The third book isn't out yet. Here is an overview of Divergent.

    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.

    During the highly competitive initiation that follows, Beatrice renames herself Tris and struggles to determine who her friends really are—and where, exactly, a romance with a sometimes fascinating, sometimes infuriating boy fits into the life she's chosen. But Tris also has a secret, one she's kept hidden from everyone because she's been warned it can mean death. And as she discovers a growing conflict that threatens to unravel her seemingly perfect society, she also learns that her secret might help her save those she loves . . . or it might destroy her.

    It seems you like popular fiction. Those books you list are just books and plays - not school books. Anyway........Down the Rabbit Hole by Peter Abrahams might be a book you would enjoy.

    Wolves or Mercy Falls series (Shiver-Linger-Forever)
