Description
(Goodreads Choice Awards Favorite Book of 2011) In Beatrice Prior's postapocalyptic Chicago, society is divided into five factions, each dedicated to the cultivation of a particular virtue—Candor (the honest), Abnegation (the selfless), Dauntless (the brave), Amity (the peaceful), and Erudite (the intelligent). Every year, all 16-year-olds are tested for their aptitude, and must select the faction to which they will devote the rest of their lives—for Beatrice, the choice is whether to stay with her Abnegation family or to be who she really is. Her initiation as a Dauntless, now calling herself Tris, includes extreme physical tests of endurance and intense psychological simulations, and it seems she will succeed. But Tris has been keeping a terrible secret: her aptitude test revealed an anomaly—one that could save those she loves, or could destroy her. Winning the top spot in the 2011 Goodreads Choice Awards (over books by George R.R. Martin, Cassandra Clarke, Tina Fey, and Ann Patchett), and soon to be a major motion picture, Veronica Roth's young adult novel has been widely hailed for its breathless pace, gripping action, and determined heroine.

"Roth tells the riveting and complex story of a teenage girl forced to choose between her routinized, selfless family and the adventurous, unrestrained future she longs for. A memorable, unpredictable journey from which it is nearly impossible to turn away."—Publishers Weekly (starred review)
