"Waiting on..." Wednesday

"Waiting on Wednesday" is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we are patiently eagerly awaiting.

The upcoming book that's I'm looking forward to this week is...

Divergent by Veronica Roth
Publication Date: 3 May 2011
Publisher: HarperCollins

Goodreads description: 
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.
Sounds awesome, right?  I don't even remember how I stumbled upon this one at first, but I think it sounds like a great read.  It has a lot of competition in the genre, no doubt, so we'll have to see how it holds up.  I already have it on hold at the public library for when it comes in.

What are you waiting for this week?
