Allegiant by Veronica Roth
Insurgent by Veronica Roth

Divergent by Veronica Roth

This book is mind-blowing.  If you like the I Am Number Four series and the Hunger Games series, you will be content with dying after you have read this book.  It's that good.  In the book, Beatrice lives in a world where there are factions to choose from and she must make her decision whether to stay with her family or follow her instincts.  I suggest this book to everyone who likes teen fiction with action.

The Last Days of Lorien by Pittacus Lore

This is the fourth book in the I Am Number Four: The Lost Files mini-series.  There are six books in this series so far.  I liked this book because it told the stories of all the Cepans while they were still living on Lorien and when they were teenagers themselves.  I liked this story because it was a change of pace; it was happy and bright in the beginning.
The Search For Sam by Pittacus Lore

This is the third book in the I Am Number Four: The Lost Files mini-series.  An interesting part in this book is that Adam meets a friend of Sam's and they end up training together and end up helping The Garde in their fight against Setrekus Ra.  I loved this book.
The Forgotten Ones by Pittacus Lore

This book is the second book in the mini-series of I Am Number Four: The Lost Files.  This book continues the story of Adam the Mogadorian.  The main theme in this book is that Adam is trying to save the Loric, but keeps failing and wonders if he should blow his cover or damage his race and possibly lose his life.  I liked this book.
