I'm a girl who reads and have too many books. You’ll know that I do because I will always have an unread book in my bag and my shelves. A girl who spends her money on books instead of clothes. A girl who has a list of books she wants to read.

Divergent by Veronica Roth

In Beatrice Prior's dystopian Chicago world, 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). On an appointed day of every year, all sixteen-year-olds must select the faction to which they will devote the rest of their lives. For Beatrice, the decision is between staying with her family and being who she really is--she can't have both. So she makes a choice that surprises everyone, including herself.

During the highly competitive initiation that follows, Beatrice renames herself Tris and struggles alongside her fellow initiates to live out the choice they have made. Together they must undergo extreme physical tests of endurance and intense psychological simulations, some with devastating consequences. As initiation transforms them all, Tris must determine who her friends really are--and where, exactly, a romance with a sometimes fascinating, sometimes exasperating boy fits into the life she's chosen. But Tris also has a secret, one she's kept hidden from everyone because she's been warned it can mean death. And as she discovers unrest and growing conflict that threaten to unravel her seemingly perfect society, Tris also learns that her secret might help her save the ones she loves . . . or it might destroy her.

Lima faksi, Abnegation, Amity, Candor, Dauntless, dan Erudite. Masing-masing punya karakter yang menggambarkan sifat para anggota faksinya. Beatrice Prior atau yang disebut Tris, dilahirkan dari keluarga Abnegation bersama kedua orang tuanya dan kakaknya, Caleb. Abnegation tidak pernah mengedepankan kepentingan pribadi, selalu tampil rapi dan dapat diandalkan karena sifat mereka yang mementingkan orang lain.
Pada hari pemilihan faksi, Tris dan Caleb memilih mengkhianati kedua orang tuanya, dengan Tris yang memilih faksi Dauntless yang mengutamakan keberanian dan tantangan, dan Caleb yang memilih Erudite, faksi yang mengutamakan ilmu pengetahuan.
Selanjutnya, konflik timbul antar faksi. Erudite selama ini ingin mengambil kekuasaan dari tangan Abnegation, sehingga menciptakan alat yang dapat mengontrol para anggota faksi. Faksi Erudite berkerjasama dengan Dauntless menghancurkan Abnegation, sehingga Tris dan Caleb harus berjuang melawan mereka.
