The Divergent Trilogy
The population of Chicago is divided into five factions, each of which believes in a particular path to order. Abnegation believes in selflessness, Dauntless in bravery, Amity in harmony, Candor in honesty, and Erudite in knowledge. Born into Abnegation, Beatrice Prior has just turned sixteen, and now she and the others of her age must choose whether to remain in the factions they were born into, or leave their families behind to join a new faction. She has never felt quite at home in Abnegation. She had hoped her aptitude test would bring clarity to her decision but instead, it tells her that she is something very dangerous: she is divergent. She doesn’t fit into just one faction and it’s a secret that follows even through her initiation into the Dauntless faction. If Dauntless training doesn’t kill her–as it well may do–being found out as divergent will.
