This book Divergent is about 5 factions; Candor (the honest), Abnegation (the selfless), Dauntless (the brave), Amity (the peaceful), and Erudite (the intelligent). Beatrice was born into the Abnegation faction, but every year when a child turns 16 they get choose which faction they want to be in for the rest of their lives. If they were to choose a different faction they could never talk to their family again. The motto is " Faction before blood." Before they choose what faction they are going to be in they have to take an aptitude test. This test is a simulation over five different situations that the 16 year old children have to make split second decisions. The decisions they make in the simulation tell them what faction they would do the best in. At the end of her simulation the instructor doing the test urgently tells her to leave and that she is putting her test results in as Abnegation. When Beatrice argues with her she tells her that she is divergent and in danger. She explains that the divergent's have the qualities of all five of the factions and are being hunted by the Erudite. Beatrice is instructed to tell no one of what has happened here and to go straight home.The next day at the choosing ceremony Beatrice decides to turn Dauntless and leave her Abnegation family behind. Beatrice is put through a couple of tests just to get to the Dauntless's home. She has to run to catch up with a train, jump from the train to the building, and jump down a black hole not knowing what was at the end of it. Beatrice was the first person to get the guts to jump down into the black hole. At the bottom waiting for her was Four and he asked her what she wanted her name to be. After that day Beatrice was now known as Tris. For Beatrice Dauntless was the worst faction to pick. It was the easiest to be discovered as a Divergent. The biggest attribute to Dauntless was the lack of fear, so they went through many tests discover that fear and conquer. The simulations were activated by syrum that was injected to veins. It was easy for Tris to get out of these simulations because she was a divergent. Four adn Tris conjured a romantic relationship and he helped her to trick the tests into believing that she was a normal Dauntless. After the acceptance to Dauntless they had cards inserted into their arms. They said they were tracking devices, but they were actually chips that made them into robots that were controlled by  a computer. Only the Divergent were immune. Tris and Four had to pretend to go along with all the other Dauntless so that they didn't get caught and executed. Genine, the leader of the Erudite, was behind all of this.  Four ended up being captured and Beatrice's mom saved her from being executed. Beatrice her father, brother and Four's father ended up going to the Dauntless house where the main controller was held. After a long battle they shut the machine down and are on the run.
