Characteristics: futuristic Chicago with a completely different (dystopian) societal structure. One girl who doesn’t quite fit in the society- and has to fight against it. A lot of action and adventure with a bit of a love story.

If your teenager loved Divergent, pick up The Moon Dwellers by David Estes as a gift.

David Estes’s Fire Country is a worthy addition to the post-apocalyptic literature. His world building is rich, detailed, and believable. The plot features Siena, a young woman born into a hyper-patriarchal tribe known as the Heaters. She’s portrayed with a deft touch–she’s not perfect–but I nonetheless found myself empathizing with her and cheering as she struggled to surmount her fate. The voice is a particular strength of this novel. Estes makes extensive use of invented language and unconventional grammar. I was thankful for the short glossary at the front of the novel, although after reading about a third of Fire Country I found that I didn’t need to refer to it anymore. Readers who enjoyed Blood Red Road by Moira Young or Riddley Walker by Russell Hoban will absolutely love this book.

Blurb :

In a desperate attempt to escape destruction decades earlier, humankind was forced underground, into the depths of the earth, creating a new society called the Tri-Realms.

After her parents and sister are abducted by the Enforcers, seventeen-year-old Adele, a member of the middle-class moon dwellers, is unjustly sentenced to life in prison for her parents’ crimes of treason.

Against all odds, Adele must escape from the Pen and find her family, while being hunted by a deranged, killing machine named Rivet, who works for the President. She is helped by two other inmates, Tawni and Cole, each of whom have dark secrets that are better left undiscovered. Other than her friends, the only thing she has going for her is a wicked roundhouse kick and two fists that have been well-trained for combat by her father.

At the other end of the social spectrum is Tristan, the son of the President and a sun dweller. His mother is gone. He hates his father. Backed by only his servant and best friend, Roc, he leaves his lavish lifestyle in the Sun Realm, seeking to make something good out of his troubled life.

When a war breaks out within the Tri-Realms, Tristan is thrust into the middle of a conflict that seems to mysteriously follow Adele as she seeks to find her family and uncover her parents true past.

In their world, someone must die. – Goodreads
