Beatrice ‘Tris’ Prior

People, once they turn 16 years old, can choose which faction they want to go with. They go through a simulation first to help them decide. On this first book from the Divergent series, Veronica Roth shows how one decision can transform you. Beatrice Prior’s community is divided into five factions: Candor who tells the truth, Amity who are loving, Erudite who are knowledgeable, Abnegation who are selfless, and the Dauntless who are brave. They can either stay or transfer factions. During the initiation, they must pass and are ranked or they will be factionless, which is worse than death.
The story revolves around Tris’ life as she discovers her true character of being selfless and brave at the same time, and how her choices will affect the people around her.
Faction before family — will this still be appropriate when you’re family is the enemy of the faction you belong to?
Be brave and selfless at the same time and discover how being Divergent is said to be dangerous.
