Summary
Beatrice Prior lives in a society where people are divided into factions that value and cultivate a particular virtue. At the age of sixteen, citizens must choose a faction. Once her decision is made, Beatrice renames herself Tris and begins the grueling and dangerous initiation process. Protecting a secret that could lead to her death if discovered, Tris soon learns that there is growing conflict among certain factions. As tension mounts Tris learns that her secret could be the key to saving those she loves.
Critique
Violence, backstabbing, and high stakes challenges are par for the course in this promising start to a new dystopian trilogy. Intense and suspenseful, this is a must-read for fans of The Hunger Games. Highly recommend.
