Beatrice Prior lives in a world that is spit up by factions that value different things, and since its her sixteenth birthday, it is time for her to choose which faction she will live in for the rest of her life.
Beatrice takes a test that will tell her which factions she is compatible with, but the results show that she could choose three different factions which means she is divergent and she is told to not tell anyone because being divergent is dangerous.
Beatrice chooses to leave her family and home faction, which values selflessness, and she moves to a faction that values bravery.
She changes her name to Tris and starts training to become a dauntless because if she doesn't complete the training, she will become factionless.
She learns to fight, use weapons, and she takes tests in a machine that faces you with your worst fears.
She meets new friends and gets to know her teacher, Four, who she has a crush on.
Some of the initiates also become Tris' enemies, Peter, the leader of the bad initiates stabs another initiate, Edward, in the eye, and Edward and his girlfriend leave and become factionless.
Tris becomes so highly ranked in her classes that the bad initiates and one of her friends become jealous try to kill her, but Four saves her, and they start to become more than friends.
Tris' friend asks Tris for forgiveness for what he did to her but she doesn't forgive him, and he kills himself.
The initiates take their final test, and everyone in their faction are inserted with a serum that acts as a "tracking devices" after the test.
The faction has a big party and the initiates receive the results of the tests, because only a certain number of the initiates will pass and the rest will be factionless.
Tris receives the highest ranking.
That night everyone starts "sleepwalking" so Tris follows them and tries to act like she is being controlled too.
She discovers that Four isn't being controlled either, and they come to the conclusion that its because they are both divergent.
They also learn that Eric (her other teacher), Jeanine (the leader of Tris' brother's new faction), and the rest of Jeanine's faction are controlling Tris' faction and making them kill all of Tris' old faction.
Tris gets shot in the shoulder and her and Four get caught and taken to Jeanine where Four is injected with another serum that works on the divergent, and Tris is sent to be executed.
Her mother, who is also divergent, helps her escape, but her mother is shot and dies.
She goes to where her dad and brother are hiding and she is attacked by her friend and she accidentally kills him.
The hideaways go to Four and wake him up and they shut down the control center, but her dad is also shot and he dies.
The rest of the hideaways escape on the train and head towards another faction.

Veronica Roth
I really liked this book. I think it was written well. This is because there is always something going on. There is a lot of action in the main character's life due to her faction's initiation process and the sudden destruction of her world. Even when a big event isn't occurring, Tris' mind and personality are always scattering, so the reader is always entertained.
Another thing I really liked was the development of the two main characters, Tris and Four. Tris changes so much throughout the book and it's so interesting to read what she will do next. The character Four is very mysterious and in the beginning of the book which makes you wonder who he really is. By the end everything you know is tied together to reveal who he is. But, I think Tris and Four were the only characters that were really developed, and the secondary characters were lacking something.
Another thing I didn't like was that the whole history of the society was really confusing because throughout the whole book you wonder why things are the way they are, and at the end the author pins on a short explanation which seemed weird.
I really liked this book, so I recommend it to people that like dystopian books. I also recommend it to any young adult because the main character is finding herself like we are.
Favorite Paragraph
"At home I used to spend calm, pleasant nights with my family. My mother knit scarves for the neighborhood kids. My father helped Caleb with his homework. There was a fire in the fireplace and peace in my heart, as i was doing exactly what I was supposed to be doing , and everything was quiet.
I have never been carried around by a large boy, or laughed until my stomach hurt at the dinner table, or listen to the clamor of a hundred people all talking at once. Peace is restrained; this is free."
pg. 250
This is my favorite paragraph because Tris is realizing that she can be who she wants to be. She now knows that she doesn't have to be conservative and selfless just because that's what society says she was born like. She knows that she chose the right faction for her because she isn't conservative, she is edgy. She isn't selfless, she is brave. She is finally enjoying life and she is being who she was meant to be.
This picture expresses the theme of growing up because Tris had to grow up and leave her family, gain respect, and be her.
This picture shows the theme of breaking away from the crowd because Tris breaks away from being a stereotype that society has set.
This picture shows the theme of bravery because Tris has to be brave now that she is a Dauntless even though everyone still sees her as an Abnegation
This picture expresses the theme of fear because Tris has to face her fears to become a Dauntless. It also shows that Tris's world is based on fear of being different, and that's what holds everyone back.
Thanks for watching!
