{Synopsis} –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, Tris also learns that her secret might help her save the ones she loves . . . or it might destroy her.

{My Thoughts} – This book was amazing. I wish I had read it so much sooner. However, en-light of the movie coming out soon I needed to read it.

This book sums up so many of life’s lessons. Tris is a remarkable character. She is strong, weak, self absorbed, caring, compassionate, shameful and much more.

Tris goes on a long journey in this book. Her journey is based on self discovery. She was born of one faction and left to join another faction. However, throughout the entire book she is questioning if she chose to join the right faction or not, because inside she is completely at battle with who she really is as an individual. She struggled, she fought, and she did the best she could to overcome her fears.

In this book we learn a lot about Tris and her family as well as Four and his family. All the things we learn become important and once you read the book you’ll understand more, however, if you want to find out what happened you need to read the book. I promise you won’t regret it.
