In a community far into the future where every one is divided into 5 factions, Abnegation, Amity, Candor, Dauntless, and Erudite. Tris struggles with which one to choose. After the testing her decision is made more complicated because she is one of the Divergent and can’t be categorized. Once she makes the choice she learns more about herself as well as how to protect herself. Not only can she not tell anyone that she’s divergent but it could get her killed. The Dauntless and Erudite leadership conspire to take over the government and the Divergent are the only ones left to stop them.
