Beatrice Prior is a sixteen year old girl from Abnegation-one of the five factions in her city. There is Abnegation (the selfless) Amity (the peaceful) Candor (the honest) Dauntless (the brave) and Erudite (the intelligent). For her, sixteen means the day will come soon when she must choose which faction she belongs too. Unknowing what faction result will come out of her aptitude test, Beatrice faces several obstacles inside of it. In the end, her watcher (Tori) tells her that her result was . . . well . . . different. Being different may seem like a good thing, but in her city, you are supposed to fit into one specific faction group. She has a choice of three. On the choosing day, Beatrice makes her choice between the three factions she showed aptitude for. Within the next few weeks, Beatrice renames herself Tris, and goes through a tough initiation process. The problem is, Tris might've made the wrong choice. She might end up getting herself, and the ones she loves, killed.

In Beatrice Prior's dystopian Chicago world, society is divided into five factions, each dedicated to the cultivation of a particular virtue-Candor (the honest), Abnegation (the selfless), Dauntless (the brave), Amity (the peaceful), and Erudite (the intelligent). On an appointed day of every year, all sixteen-year-olds must select the faction to which they will devote the rest of their lives. For Beatrice, the decision is between staying with her family and being who she really is-she can't have both. So she makes a choice that surprises everyone, including herself. During the highly competitive initiation that follows, Beatrice renames herself Tris and struggles alongside her fellow initiates to live out the choice they have made. Together they must undergo extreme physical tests of endurance and intense psychological simulations, some with devastating consequences. As initiation transforms them all, Tris must determine who her friends really are-and where, exactly, a romance with a sometimes fascinating, sometimes exasperating boy fits into the life she's chosen. But Tris also has a secret, one she's kept hidden from everyone because she's been warned it can mean death. And as she discovers unrest and growing conflict that threaten to unravel her seemingly perfect society, she also learns that her secret might help her save those she loves . . . or it might destroy her.
