Each faction has its own kind of lifestyle and characteristics that the people have to follow.
All 16-year-olds must choose a faction that they will live in for the rest of their lives. Beatrice has to choose between her family or who she really wants to be. In the end, her choice surprises everyone, especially herself.
During Beatrice’s ambitious initiation, she changes her name to Tris. She faces many challenges with her fellow initiates and struggles a lot to live with the choice she made.
She also has a secret that she is told is very dangerous and can even cause her own death. But can that choice save all her loved ones or destroy her?
The breathtaking trilogy will blow your mind.
