Beatrice Prior lives in dystopian Chicago where society is divided into five factions. When she turns sixteen, Beatrice has to choose a faction. When the day comes, she surprises everyone by choosing the faction of bravery instead of the faction of selflessness. She then goes through many adventures.
My favorite character is Beatrice because of her bravery and selflessness. My favorite part of the book was when Beatrice was shocked by Christina telling her Will kissed her because it was very funny. I rate this book as 4/5 and I would recommend it to friends because it’s funny, suspenseful and dramatic.
