Review by: Deee J.
California, Grade 11
When chaos, greed, dishonesty, dumbness, idiotism and cowardice gushed forth and flooded the world, a system developed jumped into the realm of reality wherein the people are forced to be divided into factions to restore and then preserve the unity and oneness of all. The phrase “faction before blood” then surfaced and became a well-known slogan that is a mandatory rule to be followed by everyone. A sixteen-year-old girl was then trapped in a world like this with a fear to whom and where she should or must belong, her name is Beatrice Prior and she narrated the story. Fitting in to any of the factions had been difficult for her especially after the aptitude test. Warned that she might dealt with quietus when somebody knows her secret that she’s divergent, she was pressured and tried to escape her old life to a have a new but basically she have moved into a terrible one instead as she chose to be Dauntless.
I am fond of sci-fic stories and movies especially when I read this book. I like the plot and setting and the characters
