Divergent

In this book, the main character is Beatrice who is a divergent. In this world there are five major factions Dauntless (the brave), Abnegation (the selfless), Amity The peaceful), Erudite (the intelligent), and Candor (the honest) and Beatrice is born to Abnegation. Though at her age she has to go through a test to see what faction she wants to join and she finds that she wants to go to three different factions; and these people are known as Divergent. Veronica Roth is using Beatrice to express one of the themes in this book identity. She has to keep up a good identity with her friends and how friendly she is with her family. She is trying to find out who she really is among the other factions and where she would fit in the best because she is Divergent. The problem is that since she is a divergent she wont be able to truly fit in with one faction because she likes multiple factions so she can't fit into her world.
