On a set day each year, all 16-year-olds must choose the faction they will be part of for the rest of their lives. If they later decide they don't want to be part of the faction, they can't switch, but instead become homeless and destitute, on the fringes of society.

    Although most teens choose to remain in the faction they were born to, Tris decides to switch from humble and selfless Abnegation to Dauntless, known for taking dangerous risks and for their bravery, while her brother Caleb chooses Erudite.

    Tris finds out she's actually Divergent—a person who will never be able to fit into just one faction, and if the wrong people find out, her life will be in danger.
