We love adventures and being in places we've never been to before. We also love young, powerful ladies who lead an entire country to overthrow a dysfunctional government. This is why we love reading books and watching movies set in a dystopian world. We know what to expect and what we can get from the story, even the funny Twitter account @DystopianYA knows it. Don't know if you're reading or watching something set in a dystopian society? Here 10 surefire ways to tell that you are. Heck, you might even be The Chosen One... you just don't know it yet. Hmm...

 1  There's one person destined to save the people. She just doesn't know it yet.
